Explore VATSAF Event

Welcome to the Explore VATSAF event!

The Explore VATSAF event connects multiple countries within VATSAF airspace for the first time ever in one meta-event. What makes this event unique, is the fact that it spans over several months and features a participation point system, which will allow us to hand out several sponsored prizes at the end of the event based on a random draw (number of entries dependant on how many legs each pilot flew or each controller controlled).
