Upcoming Events

Operation Deep Freeze 2019 | Saturday, January 26th | 6:00PM to 11:00PM

Throw on your warmest socks, crank up the heat, and don't forget to pack your shovel! Come join us as we staff Minneapolis to the gills on January 26th. From 6:00 PM CST until we can't take it anymore, enjoy full staffing and realistic winter operations at KMSP. Bring in IFR or VFR traffic - makes no difference to us! If bad weather is in the forecast, expect delays for deicing, snow removal, and missed approaches - hope you brought enough fuel!

As always in anticipation of a large event, we ask that pilots ensure that they have up-to-date scenery for KMSP, including runway 17/35. ZMP heartily recommends FlightBeam Studios’ excellent KMSP-HD scenery for FSX and P3D, and freeware options for FSX/FS2004 and X-Plane are also available from your add-on library of choice.

ZMP controllers will be gathering live in the Twin Cities for a weekend of winter fun. We’ll keep the fire warm and look forward to seeing everyone at MSP!

Controllers: Keep in mind that this is a live event. Priority for positons will be for people attending the event live. Controller assignments on the website will most likely change or get modified the day of the event because it’s live.

Mile High Meetup | Wednesday, January 23rd | 6:00PM to 8:00PM

Welcome to ZDV's newest event type. The Mile High Meetup. This event will occur January 23rd from 23:59z - 2:00z.
This is the first of what is going to be a biweekly event that rotates weekdays Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday.
This week's featured airport is our pride and joy: Denver International Airport
