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!

ATC will be provided from 0000z-0800z(10:00-18:00 AEST)

If I get my rating by then, I will most definately be controlling. 

You'll need to get your rating quick, cause a decent amount of ATC have applied, just remember there are other events and not to rush your training just to make it to this one, as learning the fundamentals of controlling is more important than one event:)

Hey Tristan.

From previous experience, the Events Department will not put you on a position during a busy period if you have not had your rating for a considerable amount of time. I think it is highly improbable that you will be placed on the roster during the event time. However, the next event we have will most likely be promising.

 

Note: I do not speak for the Events Department - From previous "Open" Discussions in a public environment, this information has been provided to me - it does not confirm nor deny the fact you may be added in the roster for this event

Yeah. I have heard that as well, 

 

Edit, Either way I did not get the rating.
