We're rolling into our 23rd year of celebrating all that is BVA, and we're inviting you to join us. On Saturday, August 6, our controllers will bring you seven uninterrupted hours of ATC coverage across the entirety of the Boston ARTCC. That includes Boston (KBOS), Bradley (KBDL), Providence (KPVD), Manchester (KMHT), The Cape, and more. Staffing will be available from 12-7pm ET.

We strongly recommend pilots avoid the delays at KBOS and help balance the traffic by flying to the regional airports with local ATC coverage.

We're continuing the tradition of hosting our annual Tea Party Poker. Pilots fly to staffed airports earning poker cards, and at the end of the event will have the opportunity to win great prizes from our sponsors (to be announced at a later date!). Official Tea Party Poker 2022 rules will be posted at a later date so stay tuned!
