  1. The VATPAC Events Department is seeking feedback about today's Light Up Western Australia Event! Please provide your feedback below! The survey takes approximately 3-5 minutes and will be valuable to improve our Light Up Series in the future! https://vats.im/pac/luwa-feedback Thank you!

    With another year comes another rendition of one of VATPAC’s most popular events – Panic Stations. No matter the aircraft or departure airport, this event is sure to please your inner control freak. On the 12th of March, 1913, Canberra was officially named as Australia’s new capital city, beating out both Melbourne and Sydney. Almost exactly 108 years later, we invite you to the Bush Capital for a beautiful and challenging arrival through the Brindabella Ranges, with full ATC expected between 0900z and 1200z. Event Details: Panic Stations is a simple, yet quite challenging event. Get as many aircraft flying to the destination airport as possible, with only one objective. Arrive at or after the target time to enjoy bragging rights... Well, until the next panic stations event that is! For this round, VATPAC will be returning to the traditional Panic Stations format that we know the community has grown to love over the past decade! Available titles for people to win during this event; 1x JET and 1x NON-JET Winner Touchdown time for this event is 1030z Expect delays as we try and accommodate everyone whilst maintaining separation standards! We look forward to seeing you all there! Routes: To make it easier both on you and us, we recommend the following routes for flying into Canberra. We have included the STAR you can expect at the end of the recommended route. This may be changed by the controller depending on traffic flow.
