Welcome to one of VATPAC's rare event types! A "return" event allows our pilots to fly two sectors, between two relatively close airfields! In this rendition, we will be flying out of Darwin to Denpasar and back, between the hours of 0800z to 1400z on the 28th of August 2021. This will allow pilots to get a feel of flying a return flight while testing our controllers' skills with two flows of traffic!
Departures out of Darwin will be expected to fly the JULIE5 departure off of the chosen runway at Darwin, departing at roughly 0800z. Alternatively, pilots may request the DN5 departure, however this should only be used if absolutely necessary. Pilots are advised that extra fuel may be required for both ground and air holding.
Departures out of Denpasar will be expected to fly the ANGSA3A departure off of the chosen runway. Pilots may also request radar vectors, should they require them, for operational purposes. Again, pilots are advised that extra fuel may be required for both ground and air holding.
VATPAC recommends the following routes for this event:
Any controllers interested in providing ATC services during this event are encouraged to apply here. Applications will be open until Monday the 25th of August, on which the roster will be released for public viewing.
Non-Standard positions are denoted with an (*) beside the callsign and will only be opened if sufficient controller applications are received. Please see a member of the Board of Directors, or a C3 rated controller to be granted permission to open a non-standard position on the day.
