      Communications
      Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.

      It is that time of the month again! VATPAC invites you to the next installment of Milk Run Monday! This week we are heading to the Tropical North of Australia!
      Fly between Cairns International Airport (YBCS) and Port Moresby Airport (AYPY) between 0800z - 1200z with the expectation of full ATC services throughout the event!
      Traffic for these events tends to build at around 6PM AEST and tends to peek from 8-9PM AEST. ATC Positions will be scarce! Float around the discord if you are available to control and we may even open some Non Standard ENR & TMA Splits for you all to enjoy!
       
      Routes:
      Here are some recommended routes for you to fly! Remember you can fly to and from every airport in between!
      YBCS - AYPY: CS ZANEY R210 LENAK BELUP AYPY
      AYPY - YBCS: APYP LENAK R210 ZANEY CS

       
      Controllers:
      Prefer to control during this event? Positions are often scares so be sure to float around on the discord to check when positions become available! Remember there are non-standard positions that can be opened should you be looking to join in on the fun (see a C3 or Senior Staff Member for authorisation to open them!!!) - Non-Standard Positions are noted with * beside the callsign.
