It's been some time since the last Real Ops. Actually, over 3 years and it’s coming back strong, with 8 hours of continuous ATC service. Real Ops will be held in Sydney, so get strapped in!
With this returning so has the website. All the information as well as ATC applications and pilot information can be found at https://realops.vatpac.org
What is Real Ops?
The idea is quite simple. Real Ops focuses on running the airport like it was the real world, this means that all ATC positions are rostered.
Pilots can expect holding and waits so remember to bring extra fuel. Controllers can expect hard work and many nonstandard procedures to deal with the traffic.
This time we will be focusing on Sydney’s Kingsford-Smith International Airport, which is the busiest airport in Australia by passenger volume and has the longest runway in the Southern hemisphere. There will be over 8 hours of continuous ATC services and 20+ ATC positions. What ever you like, there will be something for you!
