The VATPAC Events Department is proud to announce another edition of one of our most popular events - Panic Stations! Whether you fly a C172, B737 or A330, if you enjoy being on time, every time, then this is the event for you!

Once again, we are putting an exciting twist on the usual event, by hosting it in a procedural environment, with two touchdown times and prizes to be won!!!! Take a scenic flight up to Alice Springs (YBAS) with an expectation to have full ATC services between 0900z and 1200z!

 

Event Details:
Panic Stations is a simple yet challenging event. Get as many aircraft flying to the destination as possible, with only one objective: Arrive at or after the target times, to enjoy bragging rights... Until the next panic stations event that is! 😏

VATPAC is putting another spin on this event. Unlike last time, there will be two target arrival times and prizes for the winner of each time!!

Touch Down Times for this event are 1000z & 1100z

We recommend that pilots bring extra holding fuel for this event, as we attempt to accommodate all pilots, whilst controllers attempt to maintain a larger separation standard than usual!

We look forward to seeing you all on the tarmac at Alice Springs!

 

Prizes:
To add yet another exciting twist to this event, the VATPAC Events team has been in contact with ORBX and are extremely happy to announce that ORBX will be providing three prizes for this event! 

For Pilots: Two prizes will be on offer. To win an award, you must be the aircraft to arrive (touch down) at or just after the target arrival time. Each touchdown time has one prize that will be awarded.

For Controllers: The controller who receives the most positive feedback from the community will receive the third prize! Feel free to plug https://feedback.vatpac.org/ to the pilots transitioning your airspace!!! (Make sure to select Events Department as the Department you are writing too!)

You have to be in it to win it!!!

The following prizes are available to Pilots and Controllers:

  • Global Upgrades Collection Bundle (P3D)
  • Global openLC Collection Bundle (P3D)
  • TrueEarth Great Britain Collection Bundle (XPlane)
  • TrueEarth US Collection Bundle (XPlane)

Each winner will be able to select one of the above prizes to redeem.

If you are lucky enough to win, you will immediately be contacted by VATPAC5 to redeem your reward! 

To help us choose a winning controller, we need both pilots and controllers to submit feedback at feedback.vatpac.org and (if able) include the controller's name, CID and controlling position!
