  1. Milk Run Monday

    until
    By far the most popular of our regular weekly events, on any given Milk Run Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC. Not to be confused with our Spilled Milk Run Monday events, details of which can be found on the Spilled Milk Run page, the Milk Run invites you to fly in any direction between Sydney and Melbourne and all destinations in between (Canberra, Albury etc). Prefer to control? We recommend getting in early. ATC positions on Milk Run Monday are often scarce so definitely worth being an early bird. Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.
  2. Iron Mic Sydney

    until
    We know there's nothing more VATPAC'ers love more than some friendly competition. Join us for another Iron Mic series that takes it to the next level as we battle our neighbors across the ditch, VATNZ. Covering VATPAC's busiest airport, Sydney, we'll take on our Kiwi friends all week long. The following positions will be the primary positions: SY_TWR SY_APP ML-WOL_CTR To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Sydney 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 which recognizes a position with the most hours logged on the network. 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 (1000 AEST) to 2359Z Sunday (0959 Monday AEST). 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 Sydney positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or the 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!
  3. Real Ops Sydney

    until
    It's been some time since the last Real Ops. Actually, over 3 years and it’s coming back strong, with 8 hours of continuous ATC service. Real Ops will be held in Sydney, so get strapped in! With this returning so has the website. All the information as well as ATC applications and pilot information can be found at https://realops.vatpac.org What is Real Ops? The idea is quite simple. Real Ops focuses on running the airport like it was the real world, this means that all ATC positions are rostered. Pilots can expect holding and waits so remember to bring extra fuel. Controllers can expect hard work and many nonstandard procedures to deal with the traffic. This time we will be focusing on Sydney’s Kingsford-Smith International Airport, which is the busiest airport in Australia by passenger volume and has the longest runway in the Southern hemisphere. There will be over 8 hours of continuous ATC services and 20+ ATC positions. What ever you like, there will be something for you! The Details Sunday, October 7th ATC will be provided from 0000z-0800z(10:00-18:00 AEST) You can find all rostered positions, pilot information and more at https://realops.vatpac.org ATC Applications here: https://realops.vatpac.org . Applications will close Friday 28SEPT18. The roster will be published by Sunday 30SEPT18.

  5. Spilled Milkrun Sydney GA & Heli ops in airspace

    until
    It's Spilled Milk Run Monday, and based on the ruminations in This Thread: It's time to brush up on our Helicopter Operations around Sydney. Pilots see the Sydney ERSA (https://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/ersa/FAC_YSSY_16AUG2018.pdf ) especially from Pages 11 to 19 inclusive. Or Bankstown ERSA https://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/ersa/FAC_YSBK_16AUG2018.pdf pages 4 through 7 inclusive. If you absolutely cannot fly a Helicopter, then see if you can get a small prop aircraft into the Sydney Approach airspace. Suggested activities include: Sydney Harbour Scenic flights, at 1500ft (inside controlled airspace, VFR) Fly a practice ILS approach at Sydney Airport (IFR clearance required, even in a Cessna) - perhaps with an IFR departure from Bankstown in a piston single! or pick up IFR in the air! ATC (And pilot) instructions at https://operations.vatpac.org/documents/li/Sydney Area Local Instructions.pdf VTC available at https://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/aipchart/vtc/Sydney_VTC_24MAY2018.pdf Routes: Familiarise yourself with pages 18, 25, 27, 28 of https://operations.vatpac.org/documents/li/Sydney Area Local Instructions.pdf Why not try the Barracks 5, Maroubra 5, Cape Banks 5, Wanda 5, Georges River 5, Rosehill 5, Erskineville 5 or the Harbour Bridge 5 routes in a Helicopter? Land at Rosehill Racecourse, Transition from the Georges River 5 to Choppers South or return. Try the Wanda 5 to enter the Victor 1 northbound. Maybe the Barracks 5 on your way to Sydney Heads to transition onto the Bondi 5 southbound? Or hit Erskineville 5 for a landing at Star City Casino and Darling Harbour, or mix it with the traffic orbiting east of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a close-up view of Sydney's famous Opera House. IFR ILS practice approaches at YSSY YSBK - YSSY BK DCT SY DCT BK (Remember to ensure your DG heading is aligned for potential vectors) Sydney Scenic flight from Bankstown YSBK - YSBK BK PRT HSY STI LRF HBB LRF HSY PSP BK (Ensure you get clearance to enter the Sydney TMA prior to proceeding south of Long Reef toward Harbour Bridge) Harbour Scenic One: Long Reef - Harbour Bridge - North Head - Long Reef Harbour Scenic Two: Long Reef - Chatswood - Manly Beach - Long Reef Fixed Based WorldFlight sims We will endeavour to have ML-WOL_CTR open for some runs between YSCB (or other nearby CTAF's such as Wagga, Albury or Newcastle) and YSSY. Remember, you can always go around. For the adventurous, why not try a touch and go at YSBK?
