This September, VATPAC invites you to Melbourne for the next edition of the Panic Stations series! Whether you fly a short turboprop hop from Albury, a cruisy coastal flight from Tyabb or a long haul from LAX, it doesn't matter; all that matters is you make it on time to win the bragging rights! Victoria eagerly awaits this edition of Panic Stations, with expectations of a fully staffed Melbourne (YMML) between 0700z - 1000z (5pm-9pm AEST, 4:30pm-8:30pm ACST, 3pm-7pm AWST).

 

Event Details:

The aim of Panic Stations is simple; get as many aircraft flying into the destination as possible with one objective. Be the first person to arrive into Melbourne at or after one of the arrival times, for your chance to score bragging rights!

Note: pilots must depart from an aerodrome more than 30 Nautical miles from Melbourne to be eligible to win the panic station award.

This edition we have two touchdown times! 0900z and 1000z.

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

 

Prizes:

VATPAC is providing awards for Panic Stations Melbourne in order to increase participation and enjoyment during the event!

For Pilots: Two $10 Euro SimMarket Vouchers will be on offer. To win an award, you must be the aircraft to arrive (touch down) at or just after the target arrival time. Each touchdown time has one prize that will be awarded.

For Controllers: Every controller who controls for one whole hour will go into the draw to win one $10 Euro SimMarket Voucher.

Rules for each of these awards will be released in the days prior to the event.
