    VATPAC and QVirtual are teaming up to bring you a one-off event. Cue the welcoming of QVirtual 10th Birthday Bash! Today we are celebrating 10 years of Qantas Virtual! If you like to fly IFR in a commercial jet or small turboprop, then this is the event for you. Enjoy the beautiful scenery that the QLD and NSW coast's offer within your simulators! Information: Today, we celebrate 10 Years since QVirtual was established, and invite members of both QVirtual and the VATSIM Community to fly between Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) and Sydney International Airport (YSSY). Pilots can expect ATC to be online between the nominated airfields from 0600z - 1000z! ATC can expect to apply their sequencing skills to generate a pleasant flow of traffic between the nominated airfields. From QVirtual: Our mission at QVirtual is to provide our pilots with the most accurate and realistic experience as possible. We achieve this by simulating the day-to-day operations of Qantas and its codeshare partners. Our schedule system contains over 36000+ schedules that gives pilots the opportunity to fly to all continents. We also simulate a pilot training academy where numerous courses are available for those who are willing to extend their love or knowledge for aviation through a better understanding of it as a whole. Keep your eye out for the QVirtual pilots flying out of YLRE the 'Spiritual' home of Qantas Routes: 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! YSSY -> YBBN: TESAT ENTRA H133 GAMBL H66 BLAKA BN YBBN -> YSSY: BN SANEG H91 SANAD TESAT ATC: The below positions are planned to be rostered for this event. Should a position not be filled by the roster, then anyone is permitted to log on and fill that position. To be rostered for this event, click here.

  14. It is with regret to the community that I advise Mr Russell Diehl has expressed his wishes to step back from the role of VFR Operations due to personal commitments in the new year. I want to take the time to let the community in on a little bit of insight to Russell over the past year and a half I have personally worked with him. Russell is a forward thinker, someone who sees a need and fulfils that need. During Russell's time as the VFR Operations coordinator, he has been as moldable and adaptable to situations as they come. Russell was and is a breeze to work with, during my time as the Deputy of Special Events, Russell provided insight from a pilots perspective directly to the Events Team, and more recently has acted as a bridge between the Events Team and the community in the proceeding years. Russell is someone that will be deeply missed by the Events Department and indeed the entire VFR Operations group. Russell will remain as the VFR Operations coordinator until the 31st January 2021. If you are interested in the role of VFR Operations Coordinator within the events team, reach out to Joshua via [email protected]
