    GPS flight plan is available for FSX/P3D .pln, X-Plane .fms and Little Navmap.

    Communications
    Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.
    Pilots also should read this post regarding the implications of using VATSIM UNICOM for CTAF. It provides some insight into potential pitfalls for the unwary when monitoring 122.80 in a CTAF environment.
    Scenery
    Due to the plethora of simulation platforms now being used, scenery is left to the discretion of each pilot.

    VATPAC is teaming with IDvACC, MYvACC and SINvACC to bring you a new event! Cue the introduction of South East Asia Connect!
    Today we are connecting the Northern Territory with Indonesia, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Check out the beautiful scenery that is on offer in your simulators as you fly over the Timor Sea and the beautiful South East Asia countryside!
     
    Information:
    Today we are heading to international destinations! Depart from Darwin International Airport (YPDN) between 1000-1300z on the 28th February 2021 inbound to Ngurah Rai International Airport (WADD), Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS) or Kuala Lumpur International Airport (WMKK).
    Pilots can expect ATC to be online for each airport during the following times:
    YPDN: 1000-1300z WADD: 1045-1400z WSSS: 1200-1500z WMKK: 1200-1600z ATC can expect a unique challenge as pilots fly in a westerly direction between the airfields. Pilots are recommended to depart Darwin between 1000-1300z in order to receive ATC services throughout their journey. However, pilots are also welcome to fly between any of the four nominated airfields in any direction.
     
    Routes:
    We recommend the following routes for you to fly during this event. You are also more than welcome to fly in any direction between the 4 airfields if you choose!
