[30SEP17 0900z-1200z] Panic Stations Adelaide

Recommended Posts



Welcome to Panic Stations Adelaide


It's been some time since we last held Panic Stations. In fact, more than a year! We couldn't let this go on any longer so, it's back! Panic Stations will be held in Adelaide offering a large variety of routes, aircraft and if necessary, holding ;)


With Panic Stations returning, So has the website. All of the event information including ATC Applications is available at the Panic Stations website https://panic.vatpac.org


What is Panic Stations?


The idea is devilishly simple. Get as many aircraft as possible to try and arrive at a destination airport, touching down at the same time.


It's up to ATC to sort it out and ensure correct procedures and separation standards are adhered to at all times. The first jet and non-jet aircraft to touch down after the target time enjoy bragging rights....until the next Panic Stations.


Pilots can expect non-standard arrivals, plenty of holding and/or speed restrictions. Controllers can expect to work hard, often in non-standard or non-radar positions. It is an extremely satisfying experience as a controller sitting back after a Panic Stations event having adhered to published standards and procedures at all times.



The Details


Saturday, September 30


ATC will be provided from 0900z-1200z (1900-2200 AEST).


The winning time for the event will be 1100z (2100 AEST)
