      Event Details
      This week we visit a variety of airfields to practice circuit joins. The flight is best flown "PURSUIT STYLE" allowing a number of participating pilots to act as leading aircraft when joining an airport's circuit.
      Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
      Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
      Distance : 102 nm
      Est Flight Time : approx 90 mins
      Aircraft : Single engine piston aircraft such as Cessna 172 or similar capable of 105 to 135 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.
      Altitude : Not above FL125
      Flightplan
      File as : YGYM YCXA YRBB YEUG YORC YHBA
      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.
