Welcome to the next installment of Newbie Night. This event offers the chance for inexperienced members to take to the virtual skies and for experienced controllers and pilots to offer their expertise. Whether you are completely new to flight simulation or have been flying for years and never connected to VATSIM, it will be the night for you with plenty of people available to help on the VATPAC Discord. To Join the Discord visit this link.

 

This event is for:

- Newbie pilots who want to learn and gain confidence flying with live ATC.

- Experienced controllers who are patient and willing to teach.

- Experienced pilots who are patient and willing to share knowledge.

Scenery

Due to the many simulation platforms now in use, scenery is at the discretion of the pilot. 

NOTE: if you are running any simulator based on Microsoft's Flight Simulator X platform, due to the older navigation database Coffs may be known as YSCH rather than YCFS. This is its old ICAO code.
