Feel free to log on at a nearby airport prior to the event in order to provide departure services for those flying into YBBN/YBCG!

    VATPAC invites you to a Real Operations event featuring Sydney as the host airport. Fly into or out of Sydney inbound many of the locations the aerodrome services on a daily basis. Whether you prefer a 1 hour hop with multiple sectors, or a long hall either starting or ending with full ATC, this event is for you! What is real ops? Sydney Real Ops is a major event hosted within VATPAC's airspace on the VATSIM Network. The aim of this 8 hour event is to closely replicate and simulate the real schedules of Sydney airport. Given the unprecedented circumstances that surround us, Sydney Airport's traffic levels have significantly decreased, however we have been able to secure schedules prior to COVID-19. This year we have decided to open and dedicated 8 hours of full time controlling to capture the peak arrivals and departures for Sydney, we have based these slot times on a typical weekday schedule. This year we have been blessed with the knowledge from some of our community members on how YSSY operates both on paper and in practice. With this knowledge we are able to create a simulated environment that almost mimics real world operations. How does it work? To simulate Sydney's real world environment we have carefully laid out slot times for Pilots to book, these slot times are replicated to the best of our ability given the current set of circumstances. A pilot will need to secure their slot prior to logging onto the network, if a Pilot decides to logon to the network without a slot they will need to contact Sydney Coordinator to secure a spare slot, if a pilot is inbound from another Airport into Sydney you will receive slot information from the Flow Controller. Event Details: Real Ops Sydney is designed to allow pilots and controllers the ability to receive full ATC service as they transition in and out of the busiest airport in the country. Fly either domestically or internationally as you hurtle your way to/from the airport! The possibilities are endless. Throughout this event, ATC will be tasked at keeping appropriate separations standards whilst pilots move about the TMA and ground joining the arrival and departure streams. The challenge is to keep Sydney busy for the entire event! and we can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots! All VATPAC, VATNZ and Visiting Controllers may apply for a position to control at this event, we intend on splitting the 8 hours into 2-3 shifts depending on the traffic load and ATC applications. To apply for ATC please visit the link below. Apply for ATC here! Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are eventually published and rostered. Positions that are planned to be rostered are below.
