Welcome to the next rendition of one of VATPAC's most popular events, Slotmania. This time featuring Sydney Kingsford Smith as the host airport! Fly in or out of Sydney to a selection of destinations that the aerodrome provides services for along the infamous J-Curve as we put pilots and controllers alike to the test! Looking for a challenge? This event is for you!
Slotmania is designed to test both pilots and controllers as we try to keep to a tight schedule! With slots separated by minutes, our goal is to get pilots airborne at slot time and land at their touchdown times.
Throughout this event, ATC will be tasked with keeping appropriate separations standards whilst pilots move around the TMA and ground, joining the arrival and departure streams. The challenge is to keep Sydney busy for the entire event! We can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots!
To book your flight(s), please visit the booking site.
Aircraft slots have been created to push pilots and controllers to the limit. One month prior to the event (08JUL21), slots will be opened for booking. Pilots may select more than one slot to book if their arrival or departure slot times do not overlap.
Once your slot(s) is booked, and flights are confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email. Please read over this to ensure the information is correct.
Bookings will close two days before the event (06AUG21 @ 1000z), unless booked out before this date.
Important Pilot Information:
- Please ensure you log on at least 20 minutes prior to your slot time.
- Please ensure you are using your assigned route, these routes are based on real-world. If you cannot use your assigned route, please email [email protected] or converse with Delivery on the day.
- Please be courteous; if for some reason you miss your slot, we will endeavour to fit you in.
- If you decide to fly without a slot we will do our best to fit you in, however there may be lengthy delays.
Routes: Pilots with bookings will receive their route within the confirmation email.
