31OCT20 | East Coast Connect - Brisbane & Cairns

Recommended Posts



Welcome back to one of VATPAC's newest events - East Coast Connect! Whether you like to fly IFR in a commercial jet or small turboprop, or VFR in a smaller private aircraft, this is the event for you. Enjoy the beautiful scenery that NSW and the Gold Coast offer within your simulators!


What is East Coast Connect?
East Coast Connect is a new event that offers two different types of events every four weeks. Running every second Saturday, the first round is a connection between Brisbane, Sydney and the Gold Coast. In the second round, we connect Brisbane & Cairns!

Pilots can expect ATC to be online between the nominated airfields from 0730z - 1130z!

ATC can expect to apply their sequencing skills to generate a pleasant flow of traffic between the nominated airfields.

East Coast Connect occurs every second Saturday. In the event a major event occurs on the same day, East Coast Connect will not run. Keep an eye out on the VATPAC Event Announcements for future renditions of this event!


This week, we are flying between Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) and Cairns international Airport (YBCS)

We recommend the following routes for you to fly during this event; however, you are more than welcome to fly to different aerodromes within the coverage area!

Rostering Trial:
During September & October, the events team will be trialling a rostering system for this event. The roster will be released on the Wednesday before the event. Positions that are not rostered (i.e. no controller assigned on the position) will remain free for all controllers available on the day to control.

Controllers who wish to reserve a position to control during this event are encouraged to apply via https://events.vatpac.org/. After the controller roster is released on Wednesday evening, no controllers will be added to the roster. 

Feedback about this trial can be directed to [email protected] or via https://feedback.vatpac.org/.
