Welcome to the next rendition from the Light Up series, Light Up Pacific! It is time to pull out those regional aircraft or commercial airliners and explore the 'PAC' in 'VATPAC'. Join us as we attempt to provide the most realistic ATC services for you as you travel to the many stunning destinations that Pacific islands have to offer.
From the harbour city of Port Moresby to the islands of Fiji, the Pacific Islands are a spectacle of natural wonder!
We have adapted our popular Light Up series to cater for the VATSIM 20th Birthday Celebration month! We look forward to welcoming the entire VATSIM Network to the often-forgotten Pacific Islands within Australian Airspace!
What is Light Up Pacific?
This event revolves around one of our older events (Regionals and Twins), with the idea being to provide ATC services to more regional locations around Australia and neighbouring islands. So travel to those often-forgotten destinations and provide controllers and pilots alike a different challenge—a chance to fly into an unfamiliar location and try an approach other than the usual ILS approach.
You will receive an Outside Control Airspace Service at most of our airfields from the overlying ENR Controller during this event. Pilots can expect the following service types depending on the class of Airspace.
Different to our normal Light Up series, Oceanic Control services will also be provided to aircraft flying between the nominated fields. Take a look at this Oceanic Tutorial to learn more before you fly!
Suggested Major Routes:
The Pacific islands have so much to offer and explore! Whether your flight is high or low, fast or slow, there are plenty of routes to fly. Find some of our suggested routes below, bearing in mind that Pilots are more than welcome to fly other routes from other destinations!
