    VATPAC invites you to the next Real Operations event featuring Brisbane International Airport as the host. Fly in or out of Brisbane to a huge selection of locations the aerodrome services on a daily basis. Whether you prefer a quick city hop along the 'J-curve', a transcontinental run to the west or a trip across the Pacific Ocean starting with or ending with full ATC, this event is for you! What is Real Ops? Real Ops Brisbane is a major event hosted within VATPAC's airspace on the VATSIM Network. This 8-hour event aims to closely replicate and simulate the real schedules of Brisbane International Airport. We have decided to open a dedicated 8 hours of full time controlling to capture the peak arrivals and departures for Brisbane. Flight slot times are based on a typical weekend schedule offering the most accurate schedule possible. We will provide documentation to help ensure the smooth operations of this event. This document will be released to the public in the final few days before the event. How does it work? To simulate Brisbane's real-world environment, we have carefully laid out slot times for pilots to book. These slot times are replicated from the real world to the best of our ability. A pilot will need to secure their slot before logging onto the network, if a pilot decides to log onto the network without a slot they will need to contact Brisbane Delivery to receive clearance which will be given based on an available slot. If a pilot is inbound from another airport into Brisbane; they will be accommodated secondary to those who have booked slot times. Event Details: Real Ops Brisbane is designed to allow pilots and controllers the ability to receive full ATC service as they transition in and out of the Brisbane's largest airport. Fly either domestically or internationally as you hurtle your way to/from Brisbane! The possibilities are endless. Throughout this event, ATC will be tasked with keeping appropriate separations standards whilst pilots move around the TMA and ground, joining the arrival and departure streams. The challenge is to keep Brisbane busy for the entire event! We can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots! Controler Information: All VATPAC, VATNZ and Visiting Controllers may apply for a position to control at this event. To apply for ATC, please visit the link below. Apply for ATC here! Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are eventually published and rostered. Positions that are planned to be rostered are below.
