This July, we are happy to welcome you to the Festival City for another edition of the ever-popular Panic Stations! It doesn't matter what aircraft you decide to fly, all that matters is that you make it on time to enjoy those all-important bragging rights. 

South Australia awaits for this edition of Panic Stations, with the expectation of a fully staffed Adelaide (YPAD) between 0600z-0900z (4pm-7pm AEST). Whether you arrive over the beautiful Flinders Ranges, or by crossing the renowned Eyre Peninsula, we can ensure that Adelaide won't disappoint. 

 

Event Details:

The aim of Panic Stations is a simple one; get as many aircraft flying into the destination as possible with one objective. This being to arrive into Adelaide at or after the arrival time to be in the running for exclusive bragging rights, as well as a special prize!

This time around the touchdown time is: 0800z
(6pm AEST : 5:30pm ACST : 4pm AWST)

We do recommend bringing some extra holding fuel as controllers will be busy trying to accommodate the influx of pilots whilst trying to maintain larger separation standards than usual. 

 

Prizes:

Thanks to the lovely people at Aerosoft, this Panic Stations will have a little bit more up for grabs than usual. They have generously donated three $15 Aerosoft Store Vouchers to be won by two punctual pilots and one lucky controller. 

For Pilots: To win one of two awards on offer, you must be one of the aircraft to arrive at or just after the target arrival time. One prize will be given to the first jet aircraft to arrive, with the second going to the first non-jet aircraft to arrive. 

For Controllers: Everyone controlling during the event will be entered into a controller matrix and assigned a random number. A random number generator will then be used to determine a winner of the third prize. 

This means that you have to be in it to win it!

Our three lucky winners will be immediately contacted by VATPAC5 to redeem their rewards.

The eligibility requirements for receiving these prizes will be released closer to the event date.
