  9. Changes to the above NOTAM effective 12APR21 The below modifications have been made to this Milk Run Monday NOTAM. Positions now rostered 0800z - 1200z as Daylight savings has concluded. This NOTAM will now alternate between two modes and described below (Info about each mode and the current active mode can also be found in the original NOTAM) Mode A: Daylight Saving Mode While VIC/SA/NSW and WA are in daylight savings mode (early OCT - early APR) Milk Run Monday positions are reserved from 0730-1130z each and every Monday (Excluding the last Monday of each month). Mode B: Normal Operations Mode When all eastern states operate on AEST (Early APR - Early OCT) Milk Run Monday positions are reserved from 0800z-1200z each and every Monday (Excluding the last Monday of each month). NOTICE will NOT be made for switches between mode A and mode B. Controllers are encouraged to check this NOTAM Title to see the current active mode, or check the NOTAM itself for information about which mode is currently active. Changes to the Authorisation requirements for _DEP positions C3/Senior Staff members can now authorise _DEP positions for SY/ML if traffic deems the position more important than having DEL, GND, TWR & APP all open first. This authorisation must be recorded in the #non-starndard-approvals channel on the VATPAC Discord.

    By far our most popular of all the weekly events, on any given Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC. EVENT TIME CHANGE!!! Milk Run Monday now begins at 0800z and finishes at 1200z (Due to Daylight Savings Time ending this month!) Not to be confused with out Spilled Milk Run Monday events held on the last Monday of every month, pilots can expect ATC services as you fly between Melbourne and Sydney, or any destination in between (Canberra, Albury etc). Traffic Levels usually begin to pick up around 0800z and peak between 0900-1030z. Routes: We recommend the following routes between Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney.

After the controller roster is released on Saturday evening, no controllers will be added to the roster. Positions that do not have a nominated controller (i.e. no controller assigned on the position) will remain free for all controllers available on the day to control. *Non-Standard positions* will be available for opening depending on traffic levels. They may only be opened once all of the rostered positions are filled. Please see a member of the Board of Directors, or a C3 rated controller to be granted permission to open a non-standard position.

  19. Good Morning Everyone, It is with deep regret that I announce to the VATPAC Community the departure of @Nicholas Naumovski from the Events Department. Nic has been involved in the Events Department since February 2019 and since his appointment has been a pivotal member in some of the more behind the scenes work of the Events Department. Over the past 6 months Nic has found limited availability and with his recent acceptance into his dream University course, he is now unable to dedicate any more time to VATPAC. Thank you for all your work Nicholas! It has been great watching you progress as much as you have over the previous two years and wish you all the best for what is to come.
