EVENT Flight to Friendship Season 5
Pakistan vACC held its annual event “Flight to Friendship Season 5” at Arena, Karachi on the 6th of July 2019. Participants travelled to Karachi from all around the country to get together and fly online on the VATSIM network.
Our guests on this occasion included Captain (R) Johnny Sadiq, former Captain of DC10s, B707s and B747s in Pakistan International Airlines and author of “Come Fly with Me”; Mr. Hassan Mujahid and Mr. Salman Nazar from Karachi ACC on behalf of CAA Pakistan, with over 35 years of ATC experience combined. The guests lauded the participants for taking part in this initiative, and appreciated the realism and regulations undertaken by both vPilots and vATCOs on the VATSIM network.
The team got a letter of appreciation from the Aviation Minister of Pakistan, Mr. Ghulam Sarwar Khan. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) and ASF (Airport Security Force) was very kind to approve a visit to the Shuhada Park and the Visitor Gallery at Karachi Airport (which is closed to the general public for security concerns.) Thus the aviation enthusiasts from all around the country got to experience a refurbished B747-300, a chance to visit the cockpit and learn more about flying as well as controlling at Karachi Airport.
Thank you everyone who participated! We hope to see you again soon.
