Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 212 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 90 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.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Events team is happy to announce the start of a new regular event - Australia Tour!
 
 
What is Australia Tour?
 
 
Australia Tour is a new fortnightly event that aims to tour Australia’s airports and show this country’s beauty. Every fortnight you’ll be starting another leg of the Australia wide flight! The tour will start in Sydney and end in Sydney commencing in January and ending in November! With 23 legs touring every state of the country you’ll experience the many different areas, from the booming south east to the dusty west, there will be something for everyone! Australia Tour is a fortnightly event that occurs every second Saturday from 0900z – 1200z (6pm-9pm AEDT).
 
 
This Week (12/01/2019) 1800 AEDT – 2100 AEDT
 
 
This week we’ll be starting our tour of the country and we'll be visiting the beautiful Coffs Harbour. Coffs Harbour (YCFS) is a medium sized airport in the north of New South Wales. Coffs serves GA, RPT and Charter flights, having high quality scenery as well, you’ll surely love this airport.

Sydney Area Local Instructions are available here
Coffs Harbour Airspace Diagrams are available here
 
For the Air Traffic Controllers
 
The below positions are required however, If they become full, we welcome you to logon to additional positions.

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!

Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Adelaide. Adelaide receives many passenger flights, charters and GA flights everyday from a variety destinations around Australia and many other countries from Oceania, Asia and the Middle East. With such a variety of routes, its perfect for anything so make sure our controllers are working hard!
The following positions will be the primary positions:
 
AD_TWR
AD_APP
ML-TBD_CTR
 
To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Adelaide 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 to recognizes the positions 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 to 2359z on Sunday (0859 Monday AEDT)
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 Cairns 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!

Event Details
Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 258 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 95 mins
Aircraft : Twin engine aircraft such as a DC-3, DeHavilland DHC6 Twin Otter, Canadair CL-215, Grumman Goose or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias. Perfect opportunity to fly an amphibious aircraft.
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. Similarly, this work around has been reported to be successfully adopted for X-Plane using the X-Squawkbox client. As of yet there are no available instructions for doing this.
Altitude : Not above A9500
Flightplan

This Weeks Flight for Wednesday 30th January 2019 commencing 8.30pm AEDT
Flight created by YMA555
New Zealand South Island Tour
This flight is the start of a tour of New Zealand South Island starting at Westport NZWS and travelling anti-clockwise around the island.
The tour can be flown in FSX, P3D and X-Plane 11.30 however it is to be noted that this series of flights have been created to make use of, and train us in using X-Plane 11.30.
All scenery for FSX and P3D can easily be located via Orbx South Island product.
Many of us are noobies to X-Plane and so links to XP scenery are provided. Links to Scenery These links are scenery that I am using however it is at pilots discretion which scenery they wish to use. Some will already be “expert” with XP and some of us (me!!) are not. So the following is most important.
So that all scenery will work it is highly recommended to download all the libraries in the attached list. List of all Libraries   Some of the scenery downloads will advise which libraries have been used however it is stressed that do yourself a favour and spend some time downloading all the libraries as they will definitely be needed using x-plane around the world in furture.
X-Plane Mesh. Addon mesh is not necessary however there is mesh available if you want. Again just “google” X-Plane New Zealand Mesh and you should find the product easier than going via the X-Plane.Org forum.
Flight Details: Westport NZWS to Mount Cook NZMC    Flight Details
Scenery: Orbx products recommended. X-Plane scenery highly recommended.
Aircraft: Capable of 150 kias
Comms: Tune Radio to 122.80MHz - Unless Advised by ATC or further detailed hereunder
Flight Plan: NZWS NZHP NZGM NZHK NZFJ NZMC
Suggested Altitude: Follow flight plan or levels in LNM
Distance: 172nm
Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable for VFR Flying.
Flight Plan:(NZWS-NZMC)< Just click on this link for Flight Plan for FSX or PlanG or XP11  (a .fms file)
