Just as a note if you are running any Simulator based upon Microsoft's Flight Simulator X platform, due to the older navigation database, Coffs most likely will be known as YSCH not YCFS, this is its old ICAO.
If you are uncertain or unsure how to operate within a procedural tower's airspace as an IFR aircraft, more information can be found here.
If you have any questions or feedback, Please post in the the Event Discussion Forum. We hope to see you there!
