What is a 'Shuttle' Event?
A shuttle event is where we invite pilots and controllers to fly from the defined departure airport, to the defined arrival airport with the expectation of full ATC along the way! On this occasion, we have teamed up with PCF in order to provide you with an international event!
We invite you to depart from Guam International Airport (PGUM) between 2000z and 2200z on the 21st of November 2020, inbound to Darwin International Airport (YPDN), as we attempt to test out our talented controlling team! Below you will find the recommended route between the two airfields, as well as information for your departure and arrival!
VATPAC, PCF and Indonesia VACC recommend the following route when flying between Guam and Darwin.
PGUM -> YPDN:
ROUTE: PGUM UNZ A450 LOEBB 08E40 06E39 00S37 BIK W65 ZDVEE FOLOT BUTPA A461 ADKUL UY95 DONYA DN
DEPARTURE: Radar vectors to UNZ
STAR: DONYA7A (11/29)
Remember the departure slot for PGUM is between 2000z and 2200z!
Departure From Guam:
Pilots departing from Guam International Airport (PGUM), can expect to depart from either runways 06L/R or runways 24L/R, depending on wind direction and traffic levels. Pilots are to expect radar vectors after departure towards the UNZ TACAN, or a waypoint on their route that is nearby.
Arrival Into Darwin:
Upon Arrival into Darwin International Airport (YPDN), pilots can expect the DONYA7(A/U) followed by a choice of VOR, NDB, ILS, RNAV or Visual approach (Weather Permitting) into either runway 11 or 29. 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 Darwin between 0100z and 0400z.
We ask that you are familiar with the approach type you select. If you are unfamiliar with these operations you can request vectors from the Approach controller to ensure you capture the localiser.
