Welcome to WorldFlight 2020



Worldflight Australia is a virtual round the world flight to raise money for the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The concept of a virtual, round the world flight for charity was started by a team in the United Kingdom and has spawned an annual event with participants all over the globe. World Flight Australia was started in 2001 and over the years, World Flight Australia teams have raised over $220,000 for the RFDS, helping with the costs of avionics and providing funding for Fly Around Clinics in the essential Air Ambulances used to ferry nurses, doctors and patients around rural Australia.


VATSIM Australia Pacific provides ATC within the VATPAC Airspace during Worldflight. Worldflight departs and arrives in Sydney each year, travelling through several airports within the VATPAC Airspace.


Pilot information will be published on the event page and forums prior to Friday 30th of October. 


Outbound ATC Applications Open

ATC Applications for the outbound legs of WorldFlight are now open. We invite all interested controllers to nominate their availability and get involved in the busiest event through the VATPAC Airspace. We usually see well in excess of 100 aircraft movements on the first few legs. Thanks to the large amount of sectors through our airspace this year, we have up to 39 positions which need controlling across a period of 15 hours. While the slots are 1 hour in length, we would prefer to keep controllers on single positions for at least 2-3 hours to limit interruption to pilots. This will be subject to availability. 

Apply Here: https://events.vatpac.org/worldflight-2020-outbound


The ATC Roster for the outbound legs will be published by Monday 26th of October. ATC Applications for the inbound legs will open within 7 days. If you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to reach out via forum PM or email [email protected]
