Note: the real world Brisbane Airshow has been postponed to October, so we may visit Watts Bridge again!
Simulation Date/Time: Current date set to daylight.
Weather: Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.If not using live weather, please be mindful of others who are using live weather and will be taking off and landing into the wind.
Distance: 184 nm
Est Flight Time: approx 75 mins
Aircraft: Any GA aircraft capable of 140-160 kias and landing on an 800m grass runway.
Altitude: Remain in class G airspace. See waypoint notes below.

GPS flight plan is available for FSX/P3D .pln, MFS2020 .pln, X-Plane .fms and Little Navmap. This package includes high res charts.
Navigation: Pilots are encouraged to navigate visually. For those less familiar the accompanying GPS flight plan is the recommended method of navigation.
Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. During an event, Pilots are requested to broadcast intentions on the published CTAF. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM CoC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor UNICOM on 122.800. Pilots should ensure that at least one of their radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive UNICOM transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF.
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.
Due to the plethora of simulation platforms now being used, scenery is left to the discretion of each pilot. Updated X-Plane 11 scenery is available for Wyreema in OzXP and for other airports.
ChartsDue to image size limitations, only low res charts are included here. High res VTC is included in the GPS flight plan package.
