Tuesday, 4th April 2017- Manhattan, New York
Ops Group Meetup and Notam Summit
We’ve never done this before, but we’re going to run our first OpsGroup meetup. Emails and slacks are all fine, but human contact is where it’s at. Come along and meet us and other awesome members of the OpsGroup!
Location: Secret downtown location in Manhattan, we’ll meet at 9am-ish on Tuesday morning, 4th April. By 10am we’ll have kicked off into International Ops 2017 with Mark, NAT chats with Dave, Antarctica fireside stories with Jamie-Rose, and then move on to looking at stupid Notams and how to fix them. You should come!
Here is the deal:
0900 You arrive. So will others. We will mostly be pilots, dispatchers, ATC’s and flight dept managers but whatever your specialty is, come along.
930-ish We’ll start with the International Ops Chats- NAT ops, Antarctica, 2017 changes, and your questions.
1100 We’re probably still going with the International Ops Chats
1130 We’re onto talking NOTAMS by now
1300 Powerpoint has overheated, we’re done. Off to Lunch
1330 We’ll be having a late lunch. Join us for chats and beers, war stories, jokes, or head home instead- whatever you like.
1500 That’s All Folks. We can recommend: A visit to Concorde, go see a show on Broadway like School of Rock, go see the Nicks v Bulls, visit the Comedy Cellar, or get your Uber back to the Teterboro Holiday Inn.
Afterwards, tell us what you thought: firstname.lastname@example.org
Antarctica Fireside Chat
Jamie Rose McMillen from the FSB Int’l Desk is going to tell us some good stories from her six years living on the Ice. Find out how International Ops works in Antarctica and McMurdo Station. Join us in NYC!
International Ops 2017
There have been a city-full of changes to the International Ops world so far in 2017. A380 wake, no devices, BOE changes, ATC strike, Conflict Zones, 767 shooting, the end of Soviet QFE approaches. Mark will answer questions. Join us in NYC!
North Atlantic Changes
Dave Mumford will run through the new rules on the NAT, and answer questions from the My First Atlantic Flight guide. Just don’t ask him about the new contingency procedure. Join us in NYC!
Judging is finally complete in the Notam Goat Show. After we present the winners, we will have a good old fashioned competition, with prizes, and then get into the main event: How do we fix the Notam problem?
