Event details

Jandakot Aerodrome

For this part we build upon the previous Jandakot event. Pilots may wish to forego this flight in favour of flying the previous event if for some reason they were unable to participate at the time.

Another alternative available to pilots is to do some combination of the two. For example fly the circuit component of the previous event and then fly the exit and entry into Jandakot as a Victor 65 departure. There are of course many ways to interleave the two events and when combined with the presence of other aircraft and the potential of ATC coverage would make for a unique, challenging and enjoyable experience.

The details for the previous Jandakot event can be found in the VATPAC calendar or by simply clicking this link

Scenery limitations

Jandakot recently underwent some changes when the 12/30 runway was extended. Any documentation at Air Services Australia for recent AIRACs will reflect these changes. Sadly, simulation scenery for P3D/FSX and X-Plane has failed to keep pace. Both simulations still depict Jandakot as displayed in the accompanying CASA manuevring chart displayed below.

Recommended Resources

Here are some resources to assist with Jandakot familiarisation.

  • Jandakot in ERSA : NOTE Airport layout will reflect the changes introduced with the extension of runway 12/30 and will not reflect simulation scenery.

  • Perth VTC (Visual Terminal Chart)
    Indispensible pilot resource when flying VFR around Perth/Jandakot. A small exerpt is provided below for convenience.

  • Air Services Australia Tips for flying at Jandakot
    A good insight to expectations in regards to flying circuits and making radio calls at Jandakot. Coincidently, charts in this publication precede the recent upgrades and reflect the current simulation sceneries that will be used for this event.

  • Live ATC - Jandakot
    A good way to get a feel for radio calls used at the aerodrome. Especially useful with reference to Aerodrome charts and VTC

  • OnTrack - Jandakot Operations
    CASA video to provide pilots with greater situational awareness when operating at Jandakot

  • Youtube video - Approach into Jandakot Airport with ATC
    Provides insight into just how busy Jandakot can be, especially when the duty runway is 12/30. The arrival also illustrates the unique feature of exiting at taxiway "V" and not having to get clearance to cross runway 06R.

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.

Communications

Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.
