    Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Canberra! Canberra airport is the major airport serving Australia's capital city and features several domestic destinations and a couple of international ones too, placing it as Australia's 8th busiest airport. Join us from September 30th to October 6th as we attempt to take home yet another Iron Mic.
     
    The following positions will be the primary positions:
    CB_TWR
    CB_APP
    ML-SNO_CTR
     
    To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Canberra 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?

    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 Canberra 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

    This Weeks Flight for Wednesday 2nd October 2019 starting at 8.00pm AEST commences a four week flight around Lesotho. For those who do not know, Lesotho is an independent country landlocked within South Africa. Lesotho is a mostly mountainous country similar to Papua New Guinea however without the vegetation and has many very challenging airfields. For this reasons flight times appear relatively short however time will be taken to locate and land.
    The flight is based upon scenery created for X-Plane 11.30 by Alex-C downloadable here Lesotho_Africa 1.1.  Please note there are two files listed, you only need the file 1.1.  Small download only 245KB and is a  must have for the flight  as most of the airfileds are NOT in X-Plane (nor other simulators.). It is presumed that pilots know how to install Custom Scenery. If not, then there are numerous tutorials available via your search engine.
    Unfortunately this series of flights can only really be flown in XP11 although other sims can fly the route and in some cases may even have “better” scenery.
    It is also most advantageous but not necessary to create Ortho4xp tiles for the scenery ( you would need about 7 tiles) due to the improved mesh that is also created within the Ortho4xp program.  Mountains are quite respectable in default in any case.
    PS: After installing scenery do not forget to update the relevant scenery bases in whichever other programs you might use. i.e. FSTramp,  PlanG,  Little Nav Map etc.
