    Event Details
    Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
    Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
    Distance : 170 nm
    Est Flight Time : approx 85 mins
    Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Mooney Bravo, Beechcraft Baron or similar capable of 145 to 175 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.
