World Discovery Flight for 1st August 2018
ROCKY MOUNTAIN AIRPORT TOUR created by Peter Smith YMA489
A very hard flight plan in common GA Aircraft. I flew this with a Carenado B58. VFR Flight with wild swings in Altitudes. Maintain 16000 feet for most of the flight to and from the airports. You will have to fly around mountains on approaches with steep short field finals. GPS flight plan is just a guide. You will have to follow the mountain passes from some airports in order to attain sufficient altitude (in some cases). Don't wimp out! Max load your plane. I have broken this flight up into 3 Legs, the most difficult take off is at Buckhorn Ranch and the toughest area between airports is from KASE to KEGE.
Depart from KDRO and finish the final leg at KHDN

The evening's flight takes place from the eastern most airport within Australian airspace, Norfolk Island.

Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 30 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 65 mins

About Panic Stations
 
The idea is devilishly simple. Get as many aircraft as possible to try and arrive at a destination airport, touching down at the same time.
 
It's up to ATC to sort it out and ensure correct procedures and separation standards are adhered to at all times. The first jet and non-jet aircraft to touch down at/after the target time enjoy bragging rights....until the next Panic Stations.
 
Pilots can expect non-standard arrivals, plenty of holding and/or speed restrictions. Controllers can expect to work hard, often in non-standard or non-radar positions. It is an extremely satisfying experience as a controller sitting back after a Panic Stations event having adhered to published standards and procedures at all times.
 
This Panic Stations will be a little different. We're featuring 2 procedural airports! Come along as we shift the focus to Tasmania. With double the chance of winning, where will you be flying?
 
ATC Details
 
Due to the small amount of ATC Positions at Launceston & Hobart, We will also be staffing up Melbourne! ATC Applications are now open through the Panic Stations website and close on Friday 10th August. 
The following positions are currently planned to be rostered however if demand requires, it is likely that an additional non-standard Launceston or ML-TAS position will be opened on the day to assist with clearance and holding.

This event repeats every week on Monday for 5 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.
