ZBW Procedures Update

New procedures are in effect within ZBW as of 13 November 2014.   ZBW controllers will accomodate both the old RNAV arrivals as well as the new ones for some transition period.  Pilots should identfy the RNAV arrival they are planning to fly in their flight plan. Radar vector arrival procedures are also still available and in effect for those pilots unable to fly RNAV arrivals.

Attention ZBW Controllers (and TS3 visitors):

Please update your settings to reflect the host as "bostonartcc.net" instead of "ts3.bostonartcc.net". Due to what appears to be local DNS caching issues, the old ts3 subdomain will no longer respond.

Please note that all email addresses are the same post-migration, however you may also elect to contact staff members through the roster.

Student Controllers

Please use the training center to request training sessions. This will provide a direct link for staff members to more easily monitor and manage training sessions.
