    Jandakot Aerodrome This event is designed to expose pilots to the sort of activities commonly conducted during routine training and general aviation operations at the aerodrome. Pilots familiar with Jandakot may at their discretion undertake their own activities during the event however should be mindful about minimising any denial of active runways whilst they are undertaking their own activities. Event requirements are in two parts. One part is conducted as circuit operations and the second a short flight requiring the pilot to exit and then re-enter the control zone. Each can be conducted at pilot's discretion as they can be undertaken in no particular order. There is an advantage to attempting to conduct the circuit component initially as a clearance is required before engine start. Typically, ATC will limit then number of aircraft in the circuit to no greater than six. If a request for circuits is not granted then pilots can continue the flight out of and into the Jandakot control zone as an alternative. Upon return pilots can then seek to conduct circuit operations. Pilots unfamiliar with operating out of Jandakot are strongly encouraged to refer to the section "Recommended Resources" below. In particular, read through "Jandakot ERSA" and check out "tips for flying at Jandakot". A good OFFLINE run through prior to the event will help inspire additional confidence and familiarity when it comes time to fly in the event. Event Details To best simulate real world ops, pilots should consider themselves as operating under those conditions. Pilots are also free to employ the use of different aircraft for each of the components. Both components are to be conducted independently. That is, the initial use of an aircraft from one of the southern, central or northern aprons should require taxi to a run up bay to conduct final checks pior to taxiing to the active runway. After the completion of the first component, pilots can opt to continue using the same aircraft and immediately transition to the runway to complete the remaining component or return to the apron, change aircraft and start again. Unless there is critical time pressure, pilots are to avoid flying both components by transiting from one to the other whilst operating the aircraft. For example, requesting to depart via Fremantle Golf Course to fly to Rottnest after conducting a sequence of circuits is discouraged. Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Night ops for this event is unavailable. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Aircraft : Single piston engine training aircraft such as Cessna 152/172 or similar capable of 105 to 125 kias. Better yet, fly two differing types for each component.

Any documentation at Air Services Australia for recent AIRACs will reflect these changes. Sadly, simulation scenery for P3D/FSX and X-Plane has failed to keep pace. Both simulations still depict Jandakot as displayed in the accompanying CASA manuevring chart displayed below. Airport Diagram is extracted from CASA Jandakot manoeuvring area map Circuit Directions Note : Circuit runway 24L/06R is only available when ATC is active Tower Active RWY 06L - Left RWY 06R - Right RWY 24L - Left RWY 24R - Right RWY 12 - Left RWY 30 - Left ATC may at their discretion alter these. Also, when parallel operations are in progress, there may be one tower dedicated to the circuit runway 06R/24L as well as a tower dedicated to the main 06L/24R runway.

Perth VTC (Visual Terminal Chart) Indispensible pilot resource when flying VFR around Perth/Jandakot. A small exerpt is provided below for convenience. Air Services Australia Tips for flying at Jandakot A good insight to expectations in regards to flying circuits and making radio calls at Jandakot. Coincidently, charts in this publication precede the recent upgrades and reflect the current simulation sceneries that will be used for this event. Live ATC - Jandakot A good way to get a feel for radio calls used at the aerodrome. Especially useful with reference to Aerodrome charts and VTC OnTrack - Jandakot Operations CASA video to provide pilots with greater situational awareness when operating at Jandakot Youtube video - Approach into Jandakot Airport with ATC Provides insight into just how busy Jandakot can be, especially when the duty runway is 12/30. The arrival also illustrates the unique feature of exiting at taxiway "V" and not having to get clearance to cross runway 06R. Circuit Operations Good airmanship is essential to flying a busy controlled aerodrome circuit. Pilots have to maintain good situational awareness whilst flying and communicating on the radio. This can make for a busy and at times, stressful cockpit environment. Pilots should choose an aircraft with which they are familiar and comfortable flying. Most of all, flying a busy circuit with ATC can be immensely rewarding and more importantly, fun. Preflight preparation File flightplan Altitude 1000ft Route - "CCTS" Set transponder to 3000 if ATC is active, otherwise set transponder to 1200. If NOT transitioning directly from flying circuits - ATC ACTIVE Obtain Jandakot ATIS then obtain startup clearance for circuits CTAF - determine the feasibility of conducting uncontrolled circuits under CTAF. Choose CICUIT RUNWAY based on aircraft already in the circuit. Note, circuit runway 24L/06R is not available. There is a limit of five aircraft in the circuit when Jandokot is not controlled. ATC ACTIVE - '[AIRCRAFT TYPE][CALLSIGN] [POSITION] REQUEST TAXI [B1/B5] RUN UP BAY' CTAF ADVISE taxi to [B1/B5] RUN UP BAY Complete run up checks then arrange to taxi to the duty runway. ATC ACTIVE - '[AIRCRAFT TYPE][CALLSIGN] [POSITION] REQUEST TAXI RUNWAY [CIRCUIT RUNWAY]' CTAF ADVISE taxi from [B1/B5] to the [CIRCUIT RUNWAY] At the hold point of the circuit runway. ATC ACTIVE announce "Ready hold point [CIRCUIT RUNWAY] received [ATIS ID] for CIRCUITS" CTAF ADVISE ENTERING and TAKING OFF [CIRCUIT RUNWAY] for circuits CIRCUITS REQUIRE MANDATORY CALLS ON THE DOWNWIND LEG. "[AIRCRAFT TYPE][CALLSIGN][POSITION] DOWNWIND [INTENTION] / {OPTIONAL}[APPROACH REQUEST]" [AIRCRAFT TYPE] - Simple reference to the aircraft such "cessna","piper","katana","grob" etc... [CALLSIGN] - Phonetics of the aircraft registration, or company callsign. ie VH-VFR - 'Victor Foxtrot Romeo' or 'Rescue 1' [POSITION] - Location with reference to the circuit. The ciruit diagram below breaks up three of the legs into 'early' (typically assumed when not included. Used more often in reference to traffic in the circuit by ATC) 'mid' or 'late'. Also employed by ATC to advise positions of other traffic in the circuit. example "Late Downwind" [INTENTION] - Typically requests either "FULL STOP", "TOUCH AND GO" or "STOP AND GO" amongst others. [APPROACH REQUEST] - May include non standard activities such as "GLIDE", "FLAPLESS", "ASSYMETRIC" among others. Common example 'CESSNA Victor Foxtrot Romeo DOWNWIND TOUCH AND GO' a more complex example 'TOBAGO Victor Romeo Delta MID DOWNWIND FULL STOP GLIDE APPROACH' NOTE : During this event, Pilots may request a SINGLE SUCCESSFUL "STOP AND GO" to be undertaken at the discretion of ATC. A pilot who wishes to do one of these should do so with some consideration to the pilot behind. Try to avoid executing the stop and go at a time when the pilot behind is likely to request an abnormal "GLIDE" or "FLAPLESS" approach. The pilot will obviously want to avoid being forced to abandon a non standard approach with a go around because they were denied access to the runway by an aircraft executing a stop and go. Pilots can get a more detailed explanation as to the likely responses ATC will provide and the appropriate read backs to be made by pilots in the Air Services Australia Tips for flying at Jandakot. The circuit diagram in this publication is provided below for convenience. Tasks to complete whilst flying the circuits Start with at least 1 successful STANDARD (STD) circuit before undertaking NOB-STANDARD (NON-STD) approaches. After a STD circuit or Go Around, execute 1 successful NON-STD GLIDE APPROACH On downwind call append "GLIDE APPROACH" as a [APPROACH REQUEST] IF ATC acknowledges then reduce throttles to idle mid-downwind and conduct a sweeping turn to the runway. Be sure to know the best glide speed for the aircraft being flown After a STD circuit or Go Around, execute 1 successful NON-STD FLAPLESS APPROACH On downwind call append "FLAPLESS APPROACH" as a [APPROACH REQUEST] IF ATC acknowledges then extend downwind an additional 5 seconds to accommodate the shallower approach angle and allow extra distance for a slightly higher approach speed and fly to the runway without deploying any flap. (not applicable on aircraft types without flaps) Execute at least 2 "GO AROUNDS". There is a likelihood this will occur naturally as a part of flying the circuits, otherwise, do so by intention. Announce [CALLSIGN] GOING AROUND. DO NOT fly along runway center line. If parallel runways are in use then fly to the "LIVE" side of the center line otherwise fly "DEAD" (opposite side to the side of the circuit direction) side. Once all of the above has been completed announce "FULL STOP" on downwind call, land and then taxi clear of the runway Once clear set transponder to STD BY and contact Ground/Tower if active otherwise announce taxi intentions. This will either be to taxi to one of the aprons (NORTHERN, CENTRAL or SOUTHERN) or to taxi to a runway to depart for Rottnest Island. Flight out and into Jandakot Control Zone A simple flight to Rottnest Island (Touch and Go Optional) then return and land at Jandakot. For more advanced pilots, there is an alternative option of flying via the Victor 65 scenic city route. This is part of the next Jandakot event and details of the departure are described for the event and can be found by clicking this link. Pilots are of course free to fly anywhere in Class G once clear of the control zone and should not feel compelled to fly the leg to Rottnest Island. Other alternatives include flying north or south along the coast. Pilots should refer to the local Perth VTC as they will be required to remain clear of Perth Class C and the numerous restricted areas in the vicinity. Preflight preparation File flightplan Altitude 2000ft Route : YPJT FREM YRTI POWR 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. The GPS Flight plan is useful in assisting pilots to locate the visual reporting points of FREM & POWR where scenery may not provide sufficient detail in the simulator to verify the locations accurately ATC ACTIVE Set transponder to 3000 and obtain Jandakot ATIS CTAF Set transponder 1200 and determine active runway. Adopt the runway in use by active aircraft otherwise consult the local weather and choose accordingly. If NOT transitioning directly from flying circuits - ATC ACTIVE - '[AIRCRAFT TYPE][CALLSIGN] [POSITION] REQUEST TAXI [B1/B5] RUN UP BAY' CTAF ADVISE taxi to [B1/B5] RUN UP BAY Complete run up checks then prepare to taxi to the duty runway. ATC ACTIVE - '[AIRCRAFT TYPE][CALLSIGN] [POSITION] REQUEST TAXI RUNWAY [DUTY RUNWAY]' CTAF ADVISE taxi to [B1/B5] RUN UP BAY At the hold point of the duty runway.

Expect to remain 1500 and be requested to call reaching the intermediate visual reference at "ADVENTURE WORLD" CTAF - Announce position and intentions. ADVENTURE WORLD [ADWD] Overfly - H-090° D-3 Advise ATC "[CALLSIGN] ADVENTURE WORLD" if previously requested. Expect join instructions JANDAKOT [YPJT] Land - Visual D-3 Perth VTC Communications Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.
