  • Skywonder - Website contest

    Dear members,

    We are finalizing the contest weeks with 1 more week.  You might have noticed our new website that came online last week.  In order to help you explore it, we combine the new contest with your last chance to win some of those nice tickets to Skywonder.  Tickets are valid on 1 of the fair days and you can only win once in this category.  Every day we have 2 tickets for the first answer coming in my mailbox.

    Rules:

    Yannick, one of our new staff members as WebMaster, will hide 1 ticket every day somewhere on the website.  This really could be anywhere along the new site.  This will happen every day at to clock of 1900Z.  When you click the ticket, a form will open up where you can fill out all your personal stuff in order for us to know who has sent the form.  Of course we will use your personal stuff only for this contest and will NEVER spread it to anybody else than those who are taking care of this contest.

    This will be the ticket you will be looking for, but of course it will be much smaller on the website ;)

    This part of the contest is open for everybody, so not only IVAO members can join, but also people who are not a member.
    First day of the contest Monday 13 March 2017 1900Z, closure of the contest is Saturday 18th March 2017 at 1100Z.
    The closing of day 1 will be at noon of day 2, closing of day 2 will be noon day 3, and so on.

    Good luck on exploring the new website, and good luck on finding the tickets!

    Staff Changes

     

    First of all let’s get started with the staff of the XB Region Division as a lot has changed in the past weeks.

    Jessy Stas and Ken Andries have decided to leave their staff positions. We thank them for the work they did for the division. Denis Toussaint is now Director of the Division. Two new members have joined the team. Yannick van Styvendael joined us as Webmaster and is doing an outstanding job on our new website (more info further below in the NOTAM). The second new staff member is Jonatan Geeurickx who has just been appointed as Special Operations Coordinator. A position he already occupied a few years ago. We hope these changes are going to bring some new and fresh air to the division.

     
     
     
     
     
     

    New website

     

    Thanks to Yannick, our new Webmaster, the division is glad to present its new website which is full of new features. Within the next weeks, Yannick is going to keep working really hard to be able to provide us with some incredible tools/features. We will obviously keep you posted. In the meantime, check out our new website!

    On the 26th of February, we organized the Brussels RFE 2017 which took place in Zaventem where Brussels Flight Simulators is having a really nice Boeing 737NG Simulator. This is the first event we organized together but it’s obviously not going to be the last one! We are currently working hard on our partnership and we will try to provide you with some great events/opportunities. Also, some pictures of the RFE are going to be posted on our website, check them out!

    Our ATC Operations department has worked on new tools for our ATCO’s. In fact, as we are currently still waiting for IVAC2 to get released. We are pleased to provide us with a new and updated sectorfile. This sector file will also be up to date in regard with the new RNAV (GNSS) Procedures Also, a new color scheme is now also available, as well as a new quickview for Brussels Control which regroups all the needed information for each airport in the FIR, in a single document.

     
     
     
     
     
     

    New RNAV Procedures

     

    Some airports in Belgium now have new RNAV (GNSS) Procedures. They are effective with AIRAC 1703. Be sure to check the changes!

     

    If you have troubles understanding these new procedures you may contact our Training Department and they will be glad to help you out!

     
     
     
     
     

    Special Operations restarting!

     

    The "Belux Special Operations Group" (BeSOG) is welcoming new registrations !
    If you are interested in any kind of special operations, you may apply for the BeSOG. Once your application gets approved, you will get a basic "ab-initio" training, mostly covering the procedures and rules applicable to special operations.
    After that, you will choose one or several categories : tactical flight, air transport, light aviation and/or military ATC.
    In each category, a specialized training will be provided. After the training, you will be appointed to a Squadron.
    Everybody may apply to the BeSOG.
    It is not mandatory to be part of it in order to fly special operations, but some operations are restricted to recognized SOG (see HQ Rules & regs).

    Interested? Check the link below!

    IVAO BeLux Support Team

     

    IVAO is constantly running on the hard work of volunteers, as is our beloved division. These volunteers most of the time have a Staff title. Now with this staff title comes responsibility. But we also have some people helping us behind the scenes, they are called the "IVAO BeLux Support Team". They are of great value to our division and their input and ideas are greatly appreciated. One of the advantages of the support team is that you have no responsibility like a Staff member, you help where and how you can within your area of expertise, if you don’t have time drop us quick message, no need perform daily/weekly staff duties..
    The Support Team is also a good place to start in case you would like to become Staff at one point but are afraid or unsure in the beginning. So it is ideal to get familiar with the workings of IVAO and our division.
