      OZ Flightsim Expo is being run on the 17th and 18th of November, from 10am till 5pm.
      https://www.ozflightsim.com/ 
      If you want to come down and discuss all things Flight Sim in person, then make your way to the Illawarra Regional Airport (YWOL) in person, and come to the HARS hangar main entrance (near the Qantas 747 tail).
      While we are on site, we will be showing off Vatsim at a display desk with several screens and an ATC station running a Controller client, a live Accumap sceen, and a flightsim, demonstrating how Vatsim Works.
      If you're interested, head on down!
      If you are unable to attend physically in Wollongong, why not help us demonstrate the region on Vatsim?
      Fly into, out of, or around Sydney YSSY or Control the Sydney TMA and surrounding Melbourne Centre position(s)
      If you'd like to control, let us know by filling in the form!

      Otherwise if you'd just like to fly your sim from home, then jump on and fly into the Sydney TMA!

      Event Details
      Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
      Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
      Distance : 175 nm
      Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins
      Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias.
      Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link.
      For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.

      By far the most popular of our regular weekly events, on any given Milk Run Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC.
      Not to be confused with our Spilled Milk Run Monday events, details of which can be found on the Spilled Milk Run page, the Milk Run invites you to fly in any direction between Sydney and Melbourne and all destinations in between (Canberra, Albury etc).
      Prefer to control? We recommend getting in early. ATC positions on Milk Run Monday are often scarce so definitely worth being an early bird.
      Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.
