    Hi Nathan, Yes, VATNZ do indeed host the website. I'm not quite sure if they will read this event post so you are probably better off contacting them through the website itself. https://crosstheditch.net/summer2018/contact -Sam

  5. Spilled Milk Run

    until
    It's time for Spilled Milk Run Monday, Today we will man YBBN and YBTL. Welcome to sunny Townsville, In lovely northern Queensland! As Townsville has no STAR's expect radar vectors to challenge pilots and controllers alike in the approach phase into this tropical paradise. Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.

  8. Regionals and Twins

    until
    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 Albury airport. Albury airport is an airport 240nm to the south west of Sydney and sits on the north side of the VIC / NSW state border. Its main purpose is to service the city of Albury with its 1,900 meter long runway. This airport services about 280,000 passenger movements each year making it the second busiest regional airport in NSW. Suggested Routes YSSY - YMAY DCT CORDO V169 CB J42 ARRAN YMAY - YSSY DCT UGVER DCT MUSOP W817 AKMIR W113 ODALE YMML - YMAY DCT DOSEL W569 VEGRU YMAY - YMML DCT DUGGI V147 TEMIS V169 BOYSE 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: Albury Tower | AY_TWR | 124.200 Melbourne Center | ML-WOL_CTR | 125.000 Melbourne Center | ML-SNO_CTR | 124.000 Sydney Approach | SY_APP | 124.400 Melbourne Approach | ML_APP | 132.000 Sydney Tower | SY_TWR | 120.500 Melbourne Tower | ML_TWR | 120.500 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. We hope to see you there!
  9. Milk Run Monday

    until
    By far the most popular of our regular weekly events, on any given Milk Run Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC. Not to be confused with our Spilled Milk Run Monday events, details of which can be found on the Spilled Milk Run page, the Milk Run invites you to fly in any direction between Sydney and Melbourne and all destinations in between (Canberra, Albury etc). Prefer to control? We recommend getting in early. ATC positions on Milk Run Monday are often scarce so definitely worth being an early bird. Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.
