[29OCT'16 - 20:30UTC] - BAVirtual KSFO Flyout looking for ATC

Hi,

I hope this is the correct place to post this ....

BAVirtual (formerly British Airways Virtual) will be holding an OVERNIGHTER Long Haul non-stop real time event on Saturday 29th October 2016.   Up to 40 flights will depart San Francisco International (KSFO) heading for London Heathrow (EGLL) simulating the real British Airways services that operate on this route.

All flights will be slotted five minutes apart with departures beginning at 20:30UTC (12:30 local) with the last departure around 23:30UTC (15:30 local).   Currently, we have 37 departures scheduled but there may be more.   Our pilots are of a generally professional standard and we are politely requesting any ATC services on and over San Francisco Airport and the Oakland/Northern California area if possible please, to facilitate our departures.

Thank you very kindly for your time.

Regards,

Lee James
Events & Marketing Manager

Evening Lee,

I would recommend contacting ZOA's EC (and any other relevant ARTCCs').
On a side note, if you would like to get Gander/Shanwick online, I would suggest contacting VATCAN and VATUK. I may be able to hop online....
