  1. Parafield return via Hope Valley VFR Route

    until
    Event Details Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance :117 nm Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins Aircraft :Single engine aircraft such as Cessna 172 or similar capable of 105 to 125 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. Similarly, this work around has been reported to be successfully adopted for X-Plane using the X-Squawkbox client. As of yet there are no available instructions for doing this.

  3. [14JAN - 20JAN]] Iron Mic Adelaide

    Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Adelaide. Adelaide receives many passenger flights, charters and GA flights everyday from a variety destinations around Australia and many other countries from Oceania, Asia and the Middle East. With such a variety of routes, its perfect for anything so make sure our controllers are working hard! The following positions will be the primary positions: AD_TWR AD_APP ML-TBD_CTR To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Adelaide 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 to recognises the positions with the most hours logged on the network over the week. 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 to 2359z on Sunday (0859 Monday AEDT) 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 Cairns positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or via 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!
  4. Focus Month - South Australia

    After some time, Our focus month program will be returning for January! For the month, all scheduled events will be exploring South Australia. This will enable pilots and air traffic controllers to experience South Australia and explore places they haven’t before. With plenty of aerodromes both controlled and uncontrolled and a variety of different environments, you’ll surely find something new! ATC should read up on all of the procedures local to the airport they're controlling at, especially if you are controlling somewhere new! Everything you need to know about airspace can be found in the Airspace section of the VATPAC website https://vatpac.org/operations/documents/ and all other charts and information can be found via the Airservices Australia website, available here. Stay tuned for individual event information through the calendar. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, Please direct it to https://vatpac.org/about-us/feedback/
