    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.

    Ladies and Gentleman!
     
    The Events Team is proud to present the latest major event for this year, TMA Turnaround Canberra!
     
    What is TMA Turnaround you may ask? Well, We love having competitions featured in our events to keep everyone participating for as long as possible. With this in mind, The aim will be to fly as many sectors between the nominated airports as possible, in the 4 hour period. We will have tracking in place using VATPAC Statistics. It requires that you fly from Gate to Gate, Shutting down your engines prior to commencing the next sector. However.. this time around we will be running things a little bit different.. 
     
    The Details
    The aim is for all aircraft of any type to make as many inbound / outbound trips to YSCB in the 4 hours allocated. Busy airspace is a exiting! Additionally we will be rostering basic ATC services at YMML and YSSY as potential destinations for YSCB. We want to smash the TMA with as many aircraft as we can and put our controllers to the test. Expect Delays so plan additional holding fuel and hopefully we wont have any fuel emergencies!
    We have planned routes for pilots to ensure traffic will be able to transition easily between the selected airports. Please see the below routes for the flight.
     
    YSCB - YMML
    (JET) DCT TANTA Q29 LIZZI
    (NON-JET) DCT DUBBO V169 BOYSE
     
    YMML - YSCB
    (ALL) DCT DOSEL Y59 ARRAN
     
    YSCB - YSSY
    (JET) DCT CULIN Y59 RIVET
    (NON-JET) DCT AKMIR W113 ODALE
     
    YSSY - YSCB
    (JET) DCT WOL H65 RAZZI
    (NON-JET) DCT CORDO V169 BUNGO
     
    Other traffic including VFR that arrive from or depart to a different aerodrome than listed above should can expect delays but are more than welcome. Any aircraft that wish to fly from YMML/YSSY and don't file the route above can expect delays/holding.
    Before logging on, Please check which airport has less departures at the time to ensure traffic is evenly spread across the TMA.
    With some fantastic scenery available for all these airports, we hope to see some fantastic pictures!
