    Event Details This week VFR Operations commences the year in conjunction with VATPAC's focus month flying in South Australia. This flight traverses the Eyre Peninsula, the largest three SA peninsulas flying between Port Lincoln and Streaky Bay. Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 150 nm Est Flight Time : approx 65 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.

  3. 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/
