    About Panic Stations
     
    The idea is devilishly simple. Get as many aircraft as possible to try and arrive at a destination airport, touching down at the same time.
     
    It's up to ATC to sort it out and ensure correct procedures and separation standards are adhered to at all times. The first jet and non-jet aircraft to touch down at/after the target time enjoy bragging rights....until the next Panic Stations.
     
    Pilots can expect non-standard arrivals, plenty of holding and/or speed restrictions. Controllers can expect to work hard, often in non-standard or non-radar positions. It is an extremely satisfying experience as a controller sitting back after a Panic Stations event having adhered to published standards and procedures at all times.
     
    This Panic Stations will be a little different. We're featuring 2 procedural airports! Come along as we shift the focus to Tasmania. With double the chance of winning, where will you be flying?
     
    ATC Details
     
    Due to the small amount of ATC Positions at Launceston & Hobart, We will also be staffing up Melbourne! ATC Applications are now open through the Panic Stations website and close on Friday 10th August. 
    The following positions are currently planned to be rostered however if demand requires, it is likely that an additional non-standard Launceston or ML-TAS position will be opened on the day to assist with clearance and holding.

    Event Details
    Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.

    Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins
    Aircraft : Single piston engine aircraft such as Cessna 172 or similar capable of 105 to 135 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.
