Airspace and Publications Department

Recommended Posts


The operations department have been working hard on several projects over the last few months, including finalizing vatSys sector files and update integration, alongside updating several documents including Local Instructions, vMATS, and policy changes. On top of this, the Operations team worked hard to build and update the sector files for World-Flight, ensuring that the controller team were able to easily manage the vast amounts of traffic.

As always, the operations team is always looking for people who are passionate and would like to assist the team. If you think you have what it takes to help manage the Airspace over the VATPAC sky, send an email to [email protected]; we would love to have you on board!
