    Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Adelaide. Adelaide receives many passenger flights, charters and GA flights everyday from a variety destinations around Australia and many other countries from Oceania, Asia and the Middle East. With such a variety of routes, its perfect for anything so make sure our controllers are working hard!
    The following positions will be the primary positions:
    To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Adelaide prior to occupying others. Remember, There are no reserved positions so if one of the above positions is available, logon!
    What is Iron Mic?
    Iron Mic is a weekly competition that VATSIM holds to recognizes the positions with the most hours logged on the network. It is broken into 3 categories; TWR, APP and CTR. The position in each category that logs the most online hours over a 7 day period wins the Iron Mic.
    Iron Mic runs from 0000z on Monday to 2359z on Sunday (0859 Monday AEDT)
    How do we know about our progress?
    Click on this link (http://fsmine.dhis.org/stats/showstats.cgi) to view all the VATSIM ATC stats for the week.
    Remember, Our aim is to keep the TWR, APP and CTR positions open as much as possible. Coordinate with other controllers to ensure maximum coverage of the Cairns positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or the forums.
    VATSIM has set out a few rules regarding Iron Mic which can be viewed here https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11100
    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Good Luck VATPAC!

    Event Details
    Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
    Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
    Distance :121 nm
    Est Flight Time : approx 90 mins with all touch and gos performed
    Aircraft :Single engine aircraft such as Cessna 172 or similar capable of 105 to 125 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. Similarly, this work around has been reported to be successfully adopted for X-Plane using the X-Squawkbox client. As of yet there are no available instructions for doing this.
    Altitude : Below Adelaide Class C steps
    GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful all enclosed within a Zip archive.
    Navigation : Pilots familiar with the area can navigate visually, for those less familiar the accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight plan.
