VATPAC Montly Focus Regions

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

On behalf of the VATPAC Events department, I would like to announce the introduction of Monthly Focus Regions. We have received feedback from several members in the community that they would like to see events held in locations other than Sydney, Melbourne and the familiar East Coast. Taking this onboard, We will trial having several events focused around a particular region/State in VATPAC.

 

This April will see the Focus turned on Western Australia. Events including MRM, Australia Online and VFR Ops will be based around Western Australia.

 

Also in W.A this month will be our coordinated Iron Mic effort and a TBA Major Event. 

 

While we have tried similar things in the past, We have struggled to get traffic away from the East Coast. So that this can be successful we ask pilots to give flying in a different region a crack. Instead of flying MEL-SYD in a MRM, Fly PER-KGI! It's the same amount of flight time!

 

For ATC, We encourage you to check out not only Perth, but some of Western Australia's more remote Towers such as Karratha, Port Headland or even work on some class D ops at Jandakot. It is also crucial to make this successful that you staff up W.A positions for our scheduled events rather than the East Coast.

 

We welcome feedback regarding our Focus Regions and events which can be directed to [email protected] or through the forums.
