08MAY20 | Friday Night Live - Arvo til Late (Tasmania & Melbourne)


Event details




It's last minute but with such a fast changing real world environment, we need to move quickly to keep up! Welcome back to VATPAC's newest event series, Friday Night Live! 

We're bringing you some Friday Night Entertainment that the pubs and clubs can't! Visit a new location or perhaps an old favourite, the possibilities are endless. 


This Week


This week, we're visiting Tassie! Fly from Melbourne down to Tassie and explore some beautiful scenery, procedural ATC and if the forecast holds up, some scrappy weather. 


We're looking to staff up Launceston and Hobart first but we'd love to see Melbourne activated to join in on the fun! Non Standards will be opened on a case by case basis by a Senior Staff member in accordance with the policy. 


The event won't have specified start or end times as the purpose of this event is to bring all of our ATC together to provide a highly realistic experience!


Additionally, There'll also be members of the training department around giving everyone tips and tricks on positions they may not have controlled before! We'll also be available to show you how to setup a Tower Cab in your simulator and provide phraseology guidance :D 


Come along and show your support!




There are two sources you can use to get routes from Launceston/Hobart/Melbourne.

https://flightaware.com/ - You can search through real world flights and get the route from them here. Look for a day prior to the one being operated if the route doesn't show up for the latest day. 


https://vatpac.org/pilots/pilot-tools/flight-planning/ - The VATPAC Flight Planning tool can provided limited information on routing however, should be checked for compliance with Jet/Non-Jet restrictions and currency. 

https://www.airservicesaustralia.com/aip/current/ersa/GUID_ersa-fac-2-2_27FEB2020.pdf - You can check for route compliance on the ERSA Flight Planning Requirements document. There are also heaps of approved routes on this document that you can use :D
