      Ladies and Gentlemen,
       
      Welcome to the new and improved Australia Online! Thursdays are the new Tuesdays and with that will see the return of one of our longest running events.

      Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
      Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
      Distance : 235 nm
      Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins
      Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as PC-12, Beechcraft King Air or similar capable of 185 to 225 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 : Once clear of Alice Springs Class C remain below the steps not above FL125
