  6. NOTAM - AIRAC2006 Sector File and Client Installer Downloads 1. INTRODUCTION The VATPAC Operations Department has updated the sector files, Euroscope Client Installer and Controller Client Updater. The version released today is AIRAC 2006, effective on the 21st May 2020. The sector files provided support both the Virtual Radar Client and the Euroscope Client. Introduced in this AIRAC are major changes to Brisbane SID/STAR's which include those for RWY 19L/R and RWY 01L/R. Furthermore, the sectorfiles include the new ground layout for Brisbane which includes the parallel runway. Currently the runway is closed and is scheduled to be opened on the 12th July 2020. Controllers should not assign Runway 01L/19R to any aircraft except where the pilot has specifically requested Runway 01L/19R. Controllers may indicate in their ATIS "Runway 01L/19R available on request". Please note, pilots will already have the new runway SID's/STAR's in their aircraft FMC's and some may also have the new scenery. Therefore, it can be expected that during controlled and uncontrolled operations some pilots may wish to operate on the runway. Official information regarding the opening of the RWY will be released via NOTAM following the real world opening. 2.

  9. NOTAM - AIRAC 2005 and the Marshall Islands 1. INTRODUCTION The VATPAC sector file updates are normally issued by the Operations Department every 3 months. However, VATPAC has decided to implement three standard controller positions within the Marshall Islands. Procedural tower profiles have also been updated. Hence, the issuance of AIRAC 2005. It also serves as the initial release for the VATPAC Controller Client Updater. I invite you all to utilise this great piece of software which will ensure that your information is always up to date. To find out how the updater works and how to utilise it, follow the link to the post below. The authority to control the Marshall Islands is designated to the Oceania Region under section 3.03 (B) of the VATSIM Code of Regulations. This new AIRAC affects only those users who utilise the ES Package procedural tower profiles and those who wish to control the Marshall Islands. I'd like to thank Sean Harrison and Peter Story for their efforts in compiling the required information to introduce the standard controller positions. 2. New Standard Controller Positions Bucholz Ground (PKWA_GND) - 121.900 Bucholz Tower (PKWA_TWR) - 118.800 Kwaj Approach (PKWA_APP) - 126.200 3.
