  2. Hi everyone, I am now ready to start the search for the next group of people to join the VATPAC Board of Directors, to help continue to run our great organisation and this will close off the "administrative" period that I have overseen at VATPAC. The board is accepting nominations for the following positions, and any eligable general member is permitted to make an application. Positions descriptions and requirements are linked below, next to the positions we are searching for. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Permanent Voting Board Positions: Director of ATC Training and Standards (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1r8efi_FMHEQn4W9mDXPPNr8tPWvnADZd/view?usp=sharing) Director of Airspace and Publications (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YWl07S52dp10GYqSi6kgD6YxLH9_sqG2/view?usp=sharing) Director of Membership (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kEWSRo49iiEANuPwgBvsdztHk84w51sC/view?usp=sharing) Advisory Board Member x 2 (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1e2K1DR_GwxzNfI1dzRvo3I-C3t-coqVC/view?usp=sharing) ^These positions are currently filled but are due to be renewed 01JAN2021 as per the constitution.

The new staffing structure has been attached as a PDF for those who are interested, this includes the positions currently filled by acting directors and also includes some existing volunteers who have had their role title change and reporting lines adjusted. Please note the following: All applications should be emailed to [email protected] with the subject line clearly indicating which position you are applying for and MUST include a description of why you believe you are the person for the job, how you meet the minimum criteria requirements and a little bit about yourself and your life outside of VATSIM. You should only apply for 1 position. Applications for multiple positions are allowed but frowned upon. Your application will be considered on your previous contributions to VATPAC, maturity and experience in management roles and a genuine interest to be involved with the running of the Division and NOT an interest in a 'staff title' and of course, how you meet the minmum criteria and duties. Applications will close on the 13th of December. Late applications WILL be accepted, if the position has not yet been filled. Where possible, we will try to follow the requirements of the constitution however it may be necessary to waive some requirements to facilitate this process. Any requirements waived will be clearely communicated to the general membership. Depending on the suitability of the applicant for a position, essential criteria requirements may also be waived and communicated to the general membership. I urge anyone and everyone, that has ever had the slightest urge in getting involved to throw your hat in. We are NOT asking for 50 hours of your time per week, but we are asking for your maturity, leadership and genuine desire to do something great for the community - if that means 2 hours of your time per week, then we'll take it! I look forward to seeing your applications in my inbox soon. Thank you! VATPAC Organisation Chart.pdf

    Event Details Those pilots intending to fly this flight in FSX/P3D please note the departure airport "Golden Grove YGGE" requires the installation of additional Alan Blencowe scenery. Refer to the links in the scenery section below. Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 182 nm Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Cessna Caravan or similar capable of 165 to 185 kias. Altitude : Upto A9500 Flightplan File as : YGGE YKAR YPJI YMRW YTHS YMEW YDRA YGEL GPS Flightplan is available for FSX, P3D, FS2020 as a 'pln' file and X-Plane as an 'fms' file. The original Plan-G flightplan is also included for those that find this useful. These are 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. Pilots also should read this post regarding the implications of using VATSIM UNICOM for CTAF. It provides some insight into potential pitfalls for the unwary when monitoring 122.80 in a CTAF environment.

  14. Cross the Ditch 19: Summer 2020 It's been a long long year, but on VATSIM there are some things you can still count on. In the first weekend of December pilots from every corner of the globe will descend upon Australia and New Zealand to continue their undaunted quest to Cross the Ditch! Check out the official Cross the Ditch website Apply to provide ATC Book your Flights now! View the Event Schedule Check out the Virtual Airline Leaderboard Grab the recommended add-on scenery for each of the event airports What's it all about? For twenty hours this December, the skies over the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand will be filled with aircraft all on a mission to Cross the Ditch. An example of that typical down-under understatement, this "ditch" is over 1100nm wide. The flight routes all range from three to three-and-a-half hours flight time. Throughout the event, the Oceania region's two divisions – VATNZ and VATPAC – will be providing full ATC coverage, in the Southern Hemisphere's premiere oceanic event. This is a great opportunity to experience Oceanic flying without the need to commit to an eight-hour flight! If you're new to Oceanic Flying, our reporting tool makes taking part a breeze. Event Times This twenty hour event is timed to allow pilots from all over the world to join the fun: UTC: Saturday 5th December 2020 17:00 - Sunday 6th December 2020 13:00 AEDT: Sunday 6th December 2020 04:00 - Monday 7th December 2020 00:00 NZDT: Sunday 6th December 2020 06:00 - Monday 7th December 2020 02:00 Four airports, fully staffed For this season's event, VATNZ and VATPAC are both staffing two airports from 6am to midnight local time. Pilots simply pick one of the airports and then fly to either of the two airports in the other division. The result is eight routes simultaneously crossing the Tasman, with ATC coverage for all of them. This event will be Conga-line free! It isn't possible to complete all eight routes in the one day, but shrewd pilots should be able to complete the Four Airport Challenge by operating a valid Cross the Ditch flight through all four airports during the event. The Four Airports for Cross the Ditch 19 - Summer 2020 are: VATNZ - New Zealand Queenstown (NZQN) Wellington (NZWN) VATPAC - Australia Gold Coast (YBCG) Melbourne (YMML) Calling all Pilots and Controllers Flight plans are available from the Flight Plans section. Book your flights now from the Flight Bookings page. Bookings made on this site help us plan for the event, and will also show up in vroute. Controllers wanting to get in on the action can also apply now at the event's ATC Applications page.

    VATPAC invites you to a Real Operations event featuring Perth as the host airport. Fly in or out of Perth to a huge selection of locations the aerodrome services on a daily basis. Whether you prefer a short FIFO run, a run from the Eastern Coast or a long haul trip starting with or ending with full ATC, this event is for you! What is Real Ops? Real Ops Perth is a major event hosted within VATPAC's airspace on the VATSIM Network. This 8-hour event aims to closely replicate and simulate the real schedules of Perth airport. This year we have decided to open and dedicated 8 hours of full time controlling to capture the peak arrivals and departures for Perth, we have based these slot times on a typical weekend schedule. We have provided documentation for this event to assist with the smooth operations of this event. This document will be released to the public in the final few days before the event. How does it work? To simulate Perth's real-world environment, we have carefully laid out slot times for Pilots to book, these slot times are replicated from the real world to the best of our ability. A pilot will need to secure their slot before logging onto the network, if a Pilot decides to logon to the network without a slot they will need to contact Perth Delivery to receive clearance which will be given based on an available slot, if a pilot is inbound from another Airport into Perth you will be accommodated secondary to aircraft who have booked slot times. Event Details: Real Ops Perth is designed to allow pilots and controllers the ability to receive full ATC service as they transition in and out of the west coast’s largest airport. Fly either domestically or internationally as you hurtle your way to/from the airport! The possibilities are endless. Throughout this event, ATC will be tasked at keeping appropriate separations standards whilst pilots move about the TMA and ground joining the arrival and departure streams. The challenge is to keep Perth busy for the entire event! We can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots! All VATPAC, VATNZ and Visiting Controllers may apply for a position to control at this event, we intend on splitting the 8 hours into 2-3 shifts depending on the traffic load and ATC applications. To apply for ATC please visit the link below. Apply for ATC here! Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are eventually published and rostered. Positions that are planned to be rostered are below.

Navigation : Pilots have a choice of alternatives for this flight. There is the obligatory accompanying flight plan for those that embrace the latest technology. For the more adventurous pilots the radial and distances are provided allowing the flight to be navigated using ground based radio and visual navigation techniques. 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. Pilots also should read this post regarding the implications of using VATSIM UNICOM for CTAF. It provides some insight into potential pitfalls for the unwary when monitoring 122.80 in a CTAF environment.

    We're back and proud to announce the next event for the Light Up series, Light up South Australia! It is time to pull out those regional aircraft or commercial airliners and explore the wine country of Australia as we attempt to provide the most realistic ATC services for you as you travel to stunning destinations that South Australia has to offer. Travel between Adelaide (YPAD), Parafield (YPPF), Port Augusta (YPAG), Port Lincoln (YPLC), Mount Gambier (YMTG) Ceduna (YCDU) and Olympic Dam (YOLD) plus many more with the expectation of full services from 0400z - 0800z. What is Light Up South Australia? This event revolves around one of our older events (Regionals and Twins) with the idea being to provide ATC services to more regional locations around the country. Our regional towns don’t get the love like the big cities do, so let's change that! Travel to those often-forgotten destinations and provide controllers and pilots alike a different challenge. A chance to fly into an unfamiliar location and try an approach other than the usual ILS approach. During this event, you will receive an Outside Control Airspace Service at a majority of our airfields from the overlying ENR Controller. Pilots can expect the following service types depending on the class of airspace. We encourage you to use Adelaide's secondary airport Parafield (YPPF) - Australia's third busiest airport by ground movements for use with shorter routes. Parafield is the home of many small aircraft which fly heaps of VFR and IFR routes around the south as well as housing operational historic aircraft! Suggested Major Routes: South Australia has so much to offer and explore! Whether your flight is high or low, fast or slow, there are plenty of routes to fly. Find some of our suggested routes below, bearing in mind that Pilots are more than welcome to fly other routes from other destinations! Charts for all airports can be found here.
