  1. Hi everyone. Another movement in the staff team that can be formally announced. Ryan McDonald has been appointed the Interim Director of Operations - he has some big shoes to fill thanks to the hard work of previous director, Harrison Scott. Ryan will serve in this role for a period of up to 6 months until a suitable, permanent replacement can be appointed. I look forward to seeing Ryan's contribution to the community in the coming months. Please congratulate him, when you next see him online.
  2. Hi everyone. We aren't wasting any time here - let's get straight to business.😀 I am pleased to announce that Josh Micallef, a well known and active member of our community, has been appointed to the role of Director of Events. His application was outstanding and he showed a clear vision for the events department, regarding the next 6 months and beyond. The selection panel was very impressed by his presentation and the decision was unanimous. I am excited to see what positive benefits his work will have on our community engagement and enjoyment. Please congratulate Josh next time you see him online.
  3. Some more positive feedback for some of our VATPAC controllers, which is nice to see in the email inbox. @Mackenzie Davis @James Hennell @Sean McCormack 👏 👏 👏 👏
  4. Hello from VATSIM Tech. We've just provisioned a brand-new Australia server. Within the next 24 hours, the existing "AUSTRALIA" server will go offline. Please ensure your clients are up-to-date and using the latest server file to switch to the new server called "SYD-1". This is part of the preparations for launching the new VATSIM voice infrastructure

  13. Hi all, Over the past ~72 hours, the VATSIM Data Collection System (VDCS) that VATPAC runs had intermittent outages lasting between 1 and 3 hours. We believe we've rectified the problems, but the data lost during this period is un-recoverable, so apologies for that. We aren't sure exactly what caused the problem, but as I mentioned, we believe we have fixed the issue and we will monitor the VDCS over the next few days. Thanks.
  14. Congratulations to Sean, who passed his S3 rating this weekend. 8)
  15. Congratulations to Aidan who passed his Tower rating on Saturday.
