Event Information

IVAO presents its premier event “Crowded Skies XVI” on the 4th December, 2021. This record breaking unique event sets the entire IVAO skies alive and active. This all-day event involves dozens of countries worldwide providing extensive ATC coverage for literally thousands of online flights. We expect peak traffic to start building from 19:00 UTC so make sure you are able to join in and experience the very best that IVAO has to offer.

We are delighted that our sponsor Aerosoft will again be donating to charity 1 € for each simultaneous connection made to our network during the peak hour.

For the last Crowded Skies we set a total number of 2238 simultaneous connections and we hope you will help us beat that as well as our record of 3004 simultaneous connections this year!
