    Event Details Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 160 nm Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias. Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around. Altitude : Below Perth Class C Steps. Flightplan File as : YMGT YBLN YBUN YMUL ROHM BOAT YPJT GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful all enclosed within a Zip archive. Navigation : Pilots have a choice of alternatives for this flight. There is the obligatory accompanying flight plan for those that embrace the latest technology. For the more adventurous pilots the radial and distances are provided allowing the flight to be navigated using ground based radio and visual navigation techniques. JANDAKOT PROCEDURES Jandakot is a general aviation class D aerodrome and is located in close proximity to Perth International Airport and RAAF Airbase Pearce. An excellent source of information for Jandakot VFR operations inbound and outbound can be found in CASA's "Ontrack" Online Reference Resource. Pilots unfamiliar with Jandakot Operations are encouraged to visit the site and review available information prior to operating within Jandakot airspace.In particular, review; Jandakot Inbound South via Boatyard Recommended Scenery ORBX Perth Jandakot [YPJT] Murray Field YMUL ORBX Australia ANTS AUSSIE AIRPORTS OZX AU Scenery Flight Details Navigation Reference - VOR/DME : 113.70 PH Perth MARGARET RIVER [YMGT] Takeoff elev : 374 rwy : 02/20 asphalt CTAF : 126.70 BUSSELTON [YBLN] T&G - H-050° D-21 nm pos : PH R-197° D-108 elev : 55 rwy : 03/21 asphalt CTAF : 127.00 (FSINN 126.70) NDB : BLN BUSSELTON 386.0 BUNBURY [YBUN] T&G - H-041° D-23.1 nm pos : PH R-191° D-87.2 elev : 53 rwy : 07/25 asphalt CTAF : 126.70 MYALUP Overfly - H-006° D-21.5 nm pos : PH R-193° D-65.7 WAROONA Overfly - H-051° D-13.9 nm pos : PH R-185° D-55.3 MURRAY FIELD [YMUL] T&G - H-352° D-21.8 nm pos : PH R-193° D-34.5 elev : 56 rwy : 05ns/23 asphalt rwy : 09ns/27 dirt CTAF : 119.10 ROCKINGHAM [ROHM] Overfly - H-342° D-13.8 nm pos : PH R-210° D-24 BOATYARD [BOAT] Overfly - H-007° D-8.7 nm pos : PH R-221° D-16 ADVENTURE WORLD [ADWD] Overfly - H-043° D-4.2 nm pos : PH R-221° D-11.5 JANDAKOT [YPJT] Land - H-093° D-3.2 nm elev : 99 rwy : 12/30 06R/24L 06L/24R asphalt CTAF : 118.10 NDB : JT JANDAKOT 281.0 VTC Chart WAN Chart

Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF.
