    You'll need to get your rating quick, cause a decent amount of ATC have applied, just remember there are other events and not to rush your training just to make it to this one, as learning the fundamentals of controlling is more important than one event

Controllers can expect hard work and many nonstandard procedures to deal with the traffic. This time we will be focusing on Sydney’s Kingsford-Smith International Airport, which is the busiest airport in Australia by passenger volume and has the longest runway in the Southern hemisphere. There will be over 8 hours of continuous ATC services and 20+ ATC positions. What ever you like, there will be something for you! The Details Sunday, October 7th ATC will be provided from 0000z-0800z(10:00-18:00 AEST) You can find all rostered positions, pilot information and more at https://realops.vatpac.org ATC Applications here: https://realops.vatpac.org .

  11. Regional and Twins

    What is Regionals and Twins? Taking the focus off major airports and the big jets, Regionals and Twins celebrates both Australia's vast network of inland and outback hubs and the aircraft that service them. You'll need a prop, turbo-prop or small business jet to get in and out of most of the places visited in a Regionals and Twins event but you'll get to enjoy some spectacular scenery as you cruise along at low levels. Controllers are also taken out of their comfort zone as ATC often sees procedural positions. This week's Details This month we'll be focusing on Hamilton island, Hamilton island is an airport 500nm to the north of Brisbane, its main purpose is to service the Whitsunday Islands, with a 1,764 meter long runway. This airport provides a great approach and good destination- especially for slower aircraft which can admire the beauty of this tourist destination.
