    Adelaide Non-precision Approach Night The name says it all. Due to "ground works" at Adelaide airport all precision approaches have been temporarily decommissioned. Nothing but non-precision approaches in use for this event! Whats the difference between a precision and non-precision approach? Non-precision approaches provide lateral guidance (that is, heading information), but do not provide vertical guidance (i.e., altitude and/or glidepath guidance). some example of these include; VOR - VHF omnidirectional range NDB - Non-directional beacon RNP - Required navigation performance Precision approach systems provide both lateral (heading) and vertical (glidepath) guidance. some examples of these include; ILS - Instrument landing system GLS - GBAS landing system For more information on types of approaches click here. Focus Airport: YPAD - Adelaide International Airport Time and Date: Sunday 12th April 2020 0700z - 1000z 3pm - 6pm AWST 5pm - 8pm AEST ATC Positions: ATC positions will not be rostered for this event so positions will be available on a first come first served basis. Some positions we expect to fill may include; AD_GND AD_TWR AD_APP ML-TBD_CTR ML-ESP_CTR ML-ASP_CTR ML-SNO_CTR Recommended Routes: YMML - YPAD (~1hr 10min) DCT NEVIS H345 AD YBAS - YPAD (~2hrs) DCT SADEL J251 WHA H84 AD YPPH - YPAD (<3hrs) DCT HECTO Y135 ROGAS Y39 RIKAB DCT AD Scenery Payware Adelaide Scenery Freeware Adelaide Scenery Freeware X-Plane Adelaide Scenery Payware ORBX Australia V2 We hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Distance : 190 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 175 kias. Altitude : Up to 9500ft. Flightplan File as : YPKA MIAR YPNW MESA.J YOLW YPLM 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. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.

    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.

    Pilot Briefing Guide link: http://blu3wolf.com/vatpac/Procedural_Briefing_Doc_v3.pdf This short document offers some advice on the procedures for operating at a procedural tower (like Alice Tower). For anyone planning on flying to Alice this afternoon/evening, its a worthwhile read.

    You are the second person Ive spoken to who is keen to get on Alice for the event... and I myself am in that same category! Hmm. Event Coordinators, perhaps this is an indication that a few more fly-ins to procedural tower locations is in order?

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.
