    VATPAC Invites you back to another shuttle event! This time we thought we would concentrate on the east coast and head north! Fly from Sydney inbound Cairns expecting full ATC Services from 0600z - 1200z!


    What is a 'Shuttle' Event?
    A shuttle event is where we invite Pilots and controllers to fly from a defined departure location, inbound a nominated arrival airport with the expectation of full ATC along the way!

    We invite you to depart from Sydney International Airport (YSSY) between 0600z - 0800z inbound to Cairns International Airport (YBCS) as we attempt to test out our talented controlling team! Below you will find the recommended coastal and direct routing for this event, as well as the expected SID & STARs for your flight.

    There are two different recommended routes you can take for this event. Aircraft routing via the coastal route can expect the eastern runway (16L/34R) and aircraft routing via the non-coastal route can expect the western runway (16R/34L). Airport Charts can be found here

    If you are feeling like you wish to explore what the East Coast has to offer while under the control of competent controllers, feel free to fly via our coastal route which darts around the coast. If you have always wanted to take a look at what it looks like but never had the time, this is for you!


    Coastal Route: (3hr 30min)
    SID: ENTRA8 (34R), KEVIN6 ENTRA (16L)
    STAR: UPOLO8A,B,V,Z (15), HENDO8A BARIA (33)

    If you are feeling a little more traditional, feel free to file via the usual routing for this event!
    Non-Coastal Route: (3hr 15min)
    SID: DEENA7RIC(16R), RIC5(34L)
    STAR: NONUM3A (15), HENDO8A FISHY (33)


    Departure Window:
    ATC will be provided at Sydney Airport from 0600z - 0800z. To ensure you receive ATC Services for the full length of your flight, it is recommended you depart in this window!


    Arrival into CS:
    Pilots have the option of flying either the ILS, VOR, RNAV or Visual Approaches into Cairns if weather conditions permit. ATC will assign the approach type nominated in the ATIS but you may request a different approach type if you are up for the challenge. ATC will be provided at Cairns from 0900z - 1200z.

    We ask that you are familiar with the approach type you select, including intercept and following the DME Arc to intercept the approach. If you are unfamiliar with these operations you can request vectors from the Approach controller to ensure you capture the localiser.

    ATC for this event will be rostered according to the positions nominated below. Applications are now open, click here to apply. 

    Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are rostered.
