20DEC20 | Real Ops Perth

Recommended Posts


VATPAC invites you to a Real Operations event featuring Perth as the host airport. Fly in or out of Perth to a huge selection of locations the aerodrome services on a daily basis. Whether you prefer a short FIFO run, a run from the Eastern Coast or a long haul trip starting with or ending with full ATC, this event is for you!


What is Real Ops?
Real Ops Perth is a major event hosted within VATPAC's airspace on the VATSIM Network. This 8-hour event aims to closely replicate and simulate the real schedules of Perth airport. 

This year we have decided to open and dedicated 8 hours of full time controlling to capture the peak arrivals and departures for Perth, we have based these slot times on a typical weekend schedule.

We have provided documentation for this event to assist with the smooth operations of this event. This document will be released to the public in the final few days before the event.


How does it work?
To simulate Perth's real-world environment, we have carefully laid out slot times for Pilots to book, these slot times are replicated from the real world to the best of our ability.

A pilot will need to secure their slot before logging onto the network, if a Pilot decides to logon to the network without a slot they will need to contact Perth Delivery to receive clearance which will be given based on an available slot, if a pilot is inbound from another Airport into Perth you will be accommodated secondary to aircraft who have booked slot times.


Event Details:
Real Ops Perth is designed to allow pilots and controllers the ability to receive full ATC service as they transition in and out of the west coast’s largest airport. Fly either domestically or internationally as you hurtle your way to/from the airport! The possibilities are endless.

Throughout this event, ATC will be tasked at keeping appropriate separations standards whilst pilots move about the TMA and ground joining the arrival and departure streams. The challenge is to keep Perth busy for the entire event! We can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots!



All VATPAC, VATNZ and Visiting Controllers may apply for a position to control at this event, we intend on splitting the 8 hours into 2-3 shifts depending on the traffic load and ATC applications. To apply for ATC please visit the link below.

Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are eventually published and rostered. Positions that are planned to be rostered are below.

Hello Everyone,

Some bad news today. Due to some technical difficulties caused by Joshua not being able to click a button correctly, there has been an error with the Slot Booking System for Real Ops Perth. In essence, the bookings have been reverted to when the slots where first opened (i.e. slots are no longer booked under pilots names.)

Please log into the Booking System to secure your slot once again: https://booking.vatpac.org/

We appologise for the inconvenience caused. Please spread the word and we hope to see you on the 20th of December!
