    This Weeks Flight on 10th February 2021 concludes a two leg island hop scenic flight in the Bahamas. This flight departs Nassau (MYNN) and arrives Leonard M Thompson Int'l (MYAM) This tour created by YMA555 s in response to a request following a recent Compass airlines flight to Nassau. Scenery Suggested: As quite a few pilots are now using MSFS2020 including the co-ordinator, flights in future will be provided with links to relevant MSFS2020 scenery to enhance this new platform. It is left to the discretion of pilots whatever scenery they wish to use including other platforms

    Apologies pilots. I had to publish a completely different flight plan at the last minute. Sadly, I neglected to consider differences in scenery and discovered that scenery for Lake George now reflects real world where there is no water in the lake. As such, a complete re-think was required whereby the flight now requires planes to depart with a full payload. After dumping the lot planes are redirected to a confirmed source of water to continue the flight. The return to Canberra now flies via Lake George where all can see for themselves the dry lake for themselves. Rusty.

    Event Details As my final official VATPAC VFR Operations event, this flight will begin from Goolwa, a home away from home returning to my home airport of Parafield. Departing Goolwa the flight overflies the series of five barrages that keeps the lower Murray free of salt. The flight continues via Murray Bridge and the Barossa Valley returning to Parafield from the North East. VFR Coordinator Russell Diehl Many thanks to pilots, controllers and VATPAC staff for supporting these events these past many years and hope they continue to do so as Dave Bromage takes control and advances the
  9. Event Details As the penultimate official VATPAC VFR Operations event, this flight will begin from my home airport of Parafield and at the discretion of ATC services attempt to fly from the Northern to Souther Adelaide beaches at low level. This requires clearance to fly and if the airspace is busy can be denied requiring pilots to seek the alternate Hope Valley VFR Route. Ultimately this flight follows the coast around Adelaide's Fleurieu Peninsula to the Mouth of the Murray Goolwa, my home away from home.
