About the Event

The annual instalment of Copenhagen Live first appeared in 2017 & subsequently grew even larger for 2018.
Based upon the popularity of the first and second iterations, it was decided to repeat the event annually.

Here's what to expect for 2019..

For 2019 Copenhagen Live actually comes to, well, Copenhagen! This year controllers are gathering just a few minutes north of the actual airport itself on the island of Amager. From here an entire control room will be posted, complete with tower views, enroute, approach & ground sectors for coordination way above what you're used to on VATSIM. The aim is to create an environment that is mutually enjoyable for controllers & pilots alike. We look forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen for the 3rd installment of Copenhagen Live!

Last years event was a busy one. With 600+ movements over 16 hours, we are fairly confident we broke any and all records for events in Scandinavia. This year, we're counting on you to go even further. With numerous competitions during the day, prizes sponsored by the generous developers & publishers; Aerosoft, FS2Crew, Orbx & Vidan Design and all day coverage of the entirety of Denmark, we hope that you will join us in breaking our records from 2017 & 2018.
