Event stream for October 2018 - VATPAC | VATSIM Australia Pacific Jump to content



This event repeats every week on Monday for 3 occurrences



By far the most popular of our regular weekly events, on any given Milk Run Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC.
Not to be confused with our Spilled Milk Run Monday events, details of which can be found on the Spilled Milk Run page, the Milk Run invites you to fly in any direction between Sydney and Melbourne and all destinations in between (Canberra, Albury etc).
Prefer to control? We recommend getting in early. ATC positions on Milk Run Monday are often scarce so definitely worth being an early bird.
Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.

We know there's nothing more VATPAC'ers love more than some friendly competition. Join us for another Iron Mic series that takes it to the next level as we battle our neighbors across the ditch, VATNZ. Covering VATPAC's busiest airport, Sydney, we'll take on our Kiwi friends all week long. 
 
The following positions will be the primary positions:
 
SY_TWR
SY_APP
ML-WOL_CTR
 
To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Sydney prior to occupying others. Remember, There are no reserved positions so if one of the above positions is available, logon!
 
What is Iron Mic?
 
Iron Mic is a weekly competition that VATSIM holds which recognizes a position with the most hours logged on the network. It is broken into 3 categories; TWR, APP and CTR. The position in each category that logs the most online hours over a 7 day period wins the Iron Mic. 
Iron Mic runs from 0000Z on Monday (1000 AEST) to 2359Z Sunday (0959 Monday AEST).
 
How do we know about our progress?
 
Click on this link (http://fsmine.dhis.org/stats/showstats.cgi) to view all the VATSIM ATC stats for the week.
 
Remember, Our aim is to keep the TWR, APP and CTR positions open as much as possible. Coordinate with other controllers to ensure maximum coverage of the Sydney positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or the forums.
 
VATSIM has set out a few rules regarding Iron Mic which can be viewed here https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11100
 
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Good Luck VATPAC!

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!
The Details
Sunday, October 7th
ATC will be provided from 0000z-0800z(10:00-18:00 AEST)
You can find all rostered positions, pilot information and more at https://realops.vatpac.org
ATC Applications here:
https://realops.vatpac.org . Applications will close Friday 28SEPT18. The roster will be published by Sunday 30SEPT18.

Event Details
Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 161 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins
Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias.
Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link.
For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.
Altitude : Below Darwin Class C steps
Flightplan
File as : YPKT PERON DUNDEE YDII CRAB.CLAW YDLV CHAP YPDN
GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful all enclosed within a Zip archive.
Navigation : Pilots have a choice of alternatives for this flight. There is the obligatory accompanying flight plan for those that embrace the latest technology. For the more adventurous pilots the radial and distances are provided allowing the flight to be navigated using ground based radio and visual navigation techniques.
DARWIN PROCEDURES
Darwin is a class C civil and military aerodrome. An excellent source of VFR procedural information for Darwin can be found in CASA's "Ontrack" Online Reference Resource. Pilots unfamiliar with Darwin Operations are encouraged to visit the site and review available information (video is very informative) prior to operating within Darwin airspace.
In this flight a non standard arrival not depicted as an option is used.

It's time for Spilled Milk Run Monday, Today we will man YBBN and YBTL.
Welcome to sunny Townsville, In lovely northern Queensland! 
As Townsville has no STAR's expect radar vectors to challenge pilots and controllers alike in the approach phase into this tropical paradise.
Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.

Flight created by Russell Diehl
This week we fly Chuuk (formerly Truk) Lagoon in Micronesia, a site used by the Japanese Navy in WWII where numerous ships were sunk in allied attacks. The remaining wrecks provide highly popular under water dive locations. Pilots are encouraged to download and install the additional scenery. Doing this will depict the lagoon as it existed in 1945. This replaces the present day international airport with a Japanese bomber aerodrome and adds shipping and two additional small fighter airstrips. Whilst this is encouraged, the flight can be enjoyed with default scenery though will lack the shipping and additional airfields.
Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 100 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 60 mins
Aircraft : Vintage twin piston engine aircraft such as Douglas DC-3, Grumman Goose or similar capable of 135 to 155 kias.
Communications : Unicom "rw1.vatpac.org/UNICOM_KZAK" for Micronesian Region. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link.
For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.
Altitude : 2500 recommended
Flightplan
File as : PTKK SANAT OCHA FEFAN POLLE PIIS RUO MOCH PTKK
GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful all enclosed within a Zip archive.
Navigation : The accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight plan however it should be possible to navigate visually and may be the only option given the age of the recommended aircraft types.
Recommended Scenery
Highly recommended - WWII eras Truk Atoll including Japanese Naval and Air bases. Default simulation scenery should be adequate in lieu of the above. Defaults to PTKK Chuuk International airport Flight Details
