  6. Hello All, It is with regret that I advise the community that Joshua Micallef has resigned from his position of Deputy Director, Special Events, effective immediately due to real-world commitments. On behalf of the Events team and myself I would like to thank Joshua for his time and efforts contributed to the events department and I wish him all the best with his future endeavors. See you around Josh!

Navigation : Pilots familiar with the area can navigate visually, for those less familiar the accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight plan. Communications Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.

  9. Milk Run Monday

    until
    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.

  10. Australia Day Milk Capital Run

    until
    It's the Australia Day Holiday! In 1788, some poms decided to come to New South Wales and set up a colony at Botany Bay. Turns out there wasn't enough fresh water there, so they landed in Sydney Cove instead, but eventually someone built an Airport near (later, partly in) Botany Bay. Later, in 1901, the Colonies decided to become a Nation and so established the Capital of Australia in Melbourne... temporarily at least. Later, in 1911 the Capital was established in Canberra. In Celebration of these and probably other historical facts, it's time to put a snag on the barbie. For those of you all saussaged out, there's always the Milk Run. See how many legs you can do between Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra tonight.

  15. Iron Milk Monday - Western Australia

    Map is still showing 120.5 for me. Hopefully no one gets lost over it!
  16. ML SNO CTR - Why does ATC wait until you are way passed your top of descent point before contacting you?. Then have a go at you for descending without permission.

    The way I see it they want to make it hard for people to get the thing on the ground.

    Not a happy chappie

      William Teale

      You should be calling them, 2 minutes before you intend to start your descent, advising your intentions.

      Don't assume ATC knows every detail about your aircraft  - It's possible the controller in question expected a steeper approach profile, or just plain messed up and forgot to plan your descent. Safe flying starts with clear communication, so that all involved have a common picture of what's going to happen. Advise ATC of your intentions. Advise us of your requirements, if you need anything for safety of flight - or make a request, if there's something we can do to make your life easier.

      No one is setting out to make it hard to get on the ground, trust me.

Distance : 148 nm Est Flight Time : approx 85 mins Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 145 to 175 kias. Altitude : Up to FL125. Flightplan File as : YLHR YPPS YMEU YWTV YMEP YRBY YCOE 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 familiar with the area can navigate visually, for those less familiar the accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight plan. Communications Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts.

  27. Milk Run Monday

    until
    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.

  28. Iron Mic Perth

    until
    Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Perth. Perth is the gateway to Western Australia features a vast majority of international and domestic destinations, many of which mining locations in regional WA. With such a variety of routes to choose from there is somewhere to fly for everyone! The following positions will be the primary positions: PH_TWR PH_APP ML-ESP_CTR To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Perth 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 Perth 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!
