Event Details

Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.

Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.

Distance : 160 nm

Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins

Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Cessna Caravan or similar capable of 155 to 165 kias.

Altitude : Below Perth CTA steps and remain clear of Pearce Restricted Airspace

Flightplan

File as : YPJT VFR.4 LANCELIN.ISL VFR.1 YCVS VFR.2 VFR.1 YJUR YLEA

GPS Flightplan is available for FSX, P3D, FS2020 as a 'pln' file and X-Plane as an 'fms' file. The original Plan-G flightplan is also included for those that find this useful. These are 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.

Pilots also should read this post regarding the implications of using VATSIM UNICOM for CTAF. It provides some insight into potential pitfalls for the unwary when monitoring 122.80 in a CTAF environment.

Recommended Scenery

FSX / P3D

X-Plane 10/11

Jandakot Aerodrome

Jandakot Aerodrome services general aviation aircraft located in close proximity to Perth Internation Airport and Pearce Airbase further to the north.

For this flight we depart Jandakot to the north and track the VFR Route 4 along the coast to our destination of Leeman. For the purposes of this flight it will be assumed Pearce restricted airspace R146A is active will and require the use of VFR 1/VFR 2 to avoid infringing the airspace.

Scenery limitations

Jandakot recently underwent some changes when the 12/30 runway was extended. Any documentation at Air Services Australia in 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.
