  2. Iron Mic Sydney

    until
    We know there's nothing more VATPAC'ers love more than some friendly competition. Join us for another Iron Mic series that takes it to the next level as we battle our neighbors across the ditch, VATNZ. Covering VATPAC's busiest airport, Sydney, we'll take on our Kiwi friends all week long. The following positions will be the primary positions: SY_TWR SY_APP ML-WOL_CTR To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Sydney prior to occupying others. Remember, There are no reserved positions so if one of the above positions is available, logon! What is Iron Mic? Iron Mic is a weekly competition that VATSIM holds which recognizes a position with the most hours logged on the network. It is broken into 3 categories; TWR, APP and CTR. The position in each category that logs the most online hours over a 7 day period wins the Iron Mic. Iron Mic runs from 0000Z on Monday (1000 AEST) to 2359Z Sunday (0959 Monday AEST). How do we know about our progress? Click on this link (http://fsmine.dhis.org/stats/showstats.cgi) to view all the VATSIM ATC stats for the week. Remember, Our aim is to keep the TWR, APP and CTR positions open as much as possible. Coordinate with other controllers to ensure maximum coverage of the Sydney positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or the forums. VATSIM has set out a few rules regarding Iron Mic which can be viewed here https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11100 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Good Luck VATPAC!
  3. Real Ops Sydney

    until

    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

  5. Real Ops Sydney

    until
    It's been some time since the last Real Ops. Actually, over 3 years and it’s coming back strong, with 8 hours of continuous ATC service. Real Ops will be held in Sydney, so get strapped in! With this returning so has the website. All the information as well as ATC applications and pilot information can be found at https://realops.vatpac.org What is Real Ops? The idea is quite simple. Real Ops focuses on running the airport like it was the real world, this means that all ATC positions are rostered. Pilots can expect holding and waits so remember to bring extra fuel. 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 . Applications will close Friday 28SEPT18. The roster will be published by Sunday 30SEPT18.

  7. 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. Suggested Routes YBHM - YBCS DCT HM Q26 BARIA DCT CS DCT YBCS - YBHM SWIFT Z25 ALBUX W112 HM DCT YBHM - YBBN DCT HM B462 MK H12 MAGRA UY495 COCKA Y177 SMOKA QUIE4M YBBN - YBHM TRIKI4 TRIKI DCT SU V134 MK B462 HM DCT For the Air Traffic Controllers ATC positions are not booked for these events we would love to see more of a Milk Run Monday style so jump on and take a position and have fun and control. The positions we would like to have being controlled tonight are: Hamilton Island Tower | HM_TWR | 118.700 Brisbane Centre | BN-TBP_CTR | 120.550 Cairns Approach | CS_APP | 118.400 Cairns Tower | CS_TWR | 124.900 ATC Assistance ATC Assist: https://atc.vatpac.org/ All pilot charts available at - http://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/dap/AeroProcChartsTOC.htm If you have any questions or feedback, Please post in the Event's Discussion Forum.
