17APR21 | Perth > Singapore Shuttle

Recommended Posts


In collaboration with Singapore VACC, Indonesia VACC, and VATSEA; VATPAC is delighted to invite you to the Perth -> Singapore Shuttle! Fly from Perth Airport to Singapore Changi Airport with full ATC from 0800z-1600z on the 17th of April 2021!


What is a 'Shuttle' Event?
A shuttle event is where we invite pilots and controllers to fly from the defined departure airport, to the defined arrival airport with the expectation of full ATC along the way! 

We invite you to depart from Perth Airport (YPPH) between 0800Z-1000z on the 17th of April 2021, inbound to Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS)

, as we attempt to test out our talented controlling team! Below you will find the recommended route between the two airfields, as well as information for your departure and arrival! 


VATPAC, VATSEA, Indonesia VACC and Singapore VACC recommend the following route when flying between Perth and Singapore. 


Remember the departure slot for YPPH is between 0800z- 1000z


Departure From Perth:
Pilots departing from Perth Airport (YPPH), can expect to depart from either RWY 03 or RWY 21, depending on wind direction and traffic levels. 

Click here to find all charts for YPPH.

Arrival Into Singapore:
Upon Arrival into Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS), pilots can expect either the REPOV1A or REPOV1B followed by a choice of RNAV, VOR, ILS, or Visual approach (Weather Permitting) into either Runways 02(L/C) or 20R. ATC will assign the approach type nominated in the ATIS but you may request a different approach type if you are up for the challenge. 

We ask that you are familiar with the approach type you select. If you are unfamiliar with these operations you can request vectors from the Approach controller to ensure you capture the localiser.

Flying in Oceanic Airspace:

Normal ATC throughout Australia (Brisbane Centre, Melbourne Centre, Sydney Approach, etc.) rely on radar to determine where an aircraft is in the air.
Over the ocean, there is no radar. This non-radar airspace is controlled by oceanic ATC.

All Oceanic Controlled Airspace in Australia is controlled from Brisbane, so all oceanic controllers in Australia are called "Brisbane Radio", there is no "Melbourne Radio", so ML-IND_FSS is called "Brisbane Radio".

One of the significant differences between radar and Oceanic flying is the need for position reports. 

Position reports are how ATC can determine where you are. Position reports contain estimates for waypoints, speeds, altitudes and any other information. Because there is no radar over the ocean, ATC relies on time-based separation and reports from the pilots. ATC has no way of determining where you are unless you specifically tell them.

The standard format is:

  • Current/Previous waypoint name and the time which you crossed that point.
  • Current flight level.
  • Mach number if assigned by ATC.
  • Your next waypoint and estimate for that point.
  • The waypoint after that.

For example: "Qantas 123 is position PLUGA at time 0523, flight level 380, estimating VELKU at 0750, SASRO next."

You can use the Oceanic Reporting Tool to help construct oceanic position reports.
