Ladies and Gentleman, On Saturday 20th April 2019, Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane welcomes VATUSA to Friday Night Ops. Kicking off at Friday 19th April 2019 at 2330z , So drop the juice box or the glass of whiskey and get your flight plans filed.

VATPAC has your ATC Covered manning airspace between Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane! We invite and encourage you to fly between the three airports, In any order you wish. You should allow approx 1.5-2.5 hours flying time for Jets between any given pair.

 


 

Flight Planning

In Australia, flight plans are filed in the ICAO method, with the SID/STAR not included with the initial filing. This will be provided by ATC on contact with clearance delivery (for departure) and with Centre, usually just prior to initial descent clearance.

 

In Sydney each different runway has it's own set of SID's, which can be hard to predict ahead of time. Due to this, the outbound route should start with "TESAT". TESAT is an RNAV waypoint located on the airfield, replacing the old VOR "SY" which has since been decommissioned in the real world as part of the Navigation Rationalization project which removed 179 ground-based navigation aids on the 26th of May 2016, meaning GNSS is now the primary means of navigation for all instrument flight rule aircraft and flight plans.

Knowledge about deleting waypoints and closing route discontinuities in your FMS will be useful. Cheats include knowing the 2nd waypoint along the initial airway. Additionally be aware that ATC is likely to ammend the text of your route when giving clearance in the same manner as the Electronic Flight Strip is used in the real world. Once you file it, it's theirs.

 

Flight Plan Route

To help with filing your flight plan, we reccomend Simbrief as a free service additionally there is a number of payware flightplaning software
