  13. VATPAC invites you to the next Real Operations event featuring Melbourne Tullamarine as the host airport. Fly in or out of Melbourne to a huge selection of locations the aerodrome services on a daily basis. Whether you prefer a quick city hop, a run to the west or a long haul trip starting with or ending with full ATC, this event is for you! What is Real Ops? Real Ops Melbourne 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 Melbourne Tullamarine Airport. This year we have decided to open a dedicated 8 hours of full time controlling to capture the peak arrivals and departures for Melbourne. 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 Melbourne'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 on to the network without a slot they will need to contact Melbourne Delivery to receive clearance which will be given based on an available slot. If a pilot is inbound from another airport into Melbourne; they will be accommodated secondary to those who have booked slot times. Event Details: Real Ops Melbourne is designed to allow pilots and controllers the ability to receive full ATC service as they transition in and out of the Victoria's largest airport. Fly either domestically or internationally as you hurtle your way to/from Melbourne! 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 Melbourne busy for the entire event! We can only do that with heaps and heaps of pilots! All VATPAC, VATNZ and Visiting Controllers may apply for a position to control at this event, we intend on splitting the 8 hours into 4x2 hour shifts. 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.

Booking System: To book your flight(s), please visit the booking site here. Aircraft slots have been created to simulate real-world schedules (To the best of our ability). One month prior to the event (23APR21), slots will be opened for booking. Pilots may choose more than one slot to book if their arrival or departure slot times do not overlap. Once your slot is booked, and flights are confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email. Please read over this to ensure the information is correct. Bookings will close two days prior to the event (21MAY21 @ 1000z), unless booked out prior to this date. 24 hours prior to the event commencement, you will receive an email from the Director of Events with all the appropriate Event Details! Important Pilot Information: - Please read the Pilot Briefing. This will include important airspace information including ATC flow and who to contact. - Please make sure you log on with the correct callsign at least 20 minutes prior to slot time. - Please ensure you are using your assigned route, these routes are based on real-world. If you cannot use your assigned route please email [email protected] or converse with Delivery on the day. - Please be courteous; if for some reason you miss your slot we will endeavour to fit you in. - If you decide to fly without a slot we will do our best to fit you in, however there may be lengthy delays. Documentation: Documentation for this event will be released for pilots and ATC on 18MAY21. Scenery List: YMML - Melbourne Tullamarine Intl.

  17. This ANZAC Day, in collaboration with VATNZ, we invite you to fly across the Tasman as we remember those who shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old. On April 25th, fly between Auckland Airport (NZAA) and Sydney Kingsford Smith (YSSY), as we staff the ditch for 7 hours (0200-0900z), bringing our two great nations together! Routes: VATPAC and VATNZ recommend the following routes when flying between Auckland and Sydney. YSSY -> NZAA: DCT TESAT L521 LUNBI DCT AA NZAA -> YSSY: DCT MADEP N774 TESAT DCT Flying in Oceanic Airspace: Normal ATC throughout Australia (Brisbane Centre, Melbourne Centre, Sydney Approach, etc.) rely on radar to determine where an aircraft is in the air. Over the ocean, there is no radar. This non-radar airspace is controlled by oceanic ATC. All Oceanic Controlled Airspace in Australia is controlled from Brisbane, so all oceanic controllers in Australia are called "Brisbane Radio". One of the significant differences between radar and Oceanic flying is the need for position reports. Position reports are how ATC can determine where you are. Position reports contain estimates for waypoints, speeds, altitudes and any other information. Because there is no radar over the ocean, ATC relies on time-based separation and reports from the pilots. ATC has no way of determining where you are unless you specifically tell them. The standard format is: Current/Previous waypoint name and the time which you crossed that point. Current flight level. Mach number if assigned by ATC. Your next waypoint and estimate for that point. The waypoint after that. For example: "Qantas 123 is position PLUGA at time 0523, flight level 380, estimating VELKU at 0750, SASRO next." You can use the Oceanic Reporting Tool to help construct oceanic position reports. Find more information here.

    In collaboration with Singapore VACC, Indonesia VACC, and VATSEA; VATPAC is delighted to invite you to the Perth -> Singapore Shuttle! Fly from Perth Airport to Singapore Changi Airport with full ATC from 0800z-1600z on the 17th of April 2021! What is a 'Shuttle' Event? A shuttle event is where we invite pilots and controllers to fly from the defined departure airport, to the defined arrival airport with the expectation of full ATC along the way! We invite you to depart from Perth Airport (YPPH) between 0800Z-1000z on the 17th of April 2021, inbound to Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS), as we attempt to test out our talented controlling team! Below you will find the recommended route between the two airfields, as well as information for your departure and arrival! Route: VATPAC, VATSEA, Indonesia VACC and Singapore VACC recommend the following route when flying between Perth and Singapore. YPPH -> WSSS: ROUTE: PH AVNEX N752 PLB G579 REPOV SIN DEPARTURE: AVNEX3 (ALL RUNWAYS) ARRIVAL: Expect REPOV1A or REPOV1B Remember the departure slot for YPPH is between 0800z- 1000z! Departure From Perth: Pilots departing from Perth Airport (YPPH), can expect to depart from either RWY 03 or RWY 21, depending on wind direction and traffic levels. Click here to find all charts for YPPH. Arrival Into Singapore: Upon Arrival into Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS), pilots can expect either the REPOV1A or REPOV1B followed by a choice of RNAV, VOR, ILS, or Visual approach (Weather Permitting) into either Runways 02(L/C) or 20R. ATC will assign the approach type nominated in the ATIS, but you may request a different approach type if you are up for the challenge. We ask that you are familiar with the approach type you select. If you are unfamiliar with these operations you can request vectors from the Approach controller to ensure you capture the localiser. Click here to find all charts for WSSS. Flying in Oceanic Airspace: Normal ATC throughout Australia (Brisbane Centre, Melbourne Centre, Sydney Approach, etc.) rely on radar to determine where an aircraft is in the air. Over the ocean, there is no radar. This non-radar airspace is controlled by oceanic ATC. All Oceanic Controlled Airspace in Australia is controlled from Brisbane, so all oceanic controllers in Australia are called "Brisbane Radio", there is no "Melbourne Radio", so ML-IND_FSS is called "Brisbane Radio".

  20. In collaboration with Singapore VACC, Indonesia VACC, and VATSEA; VATPAC is delighted to invite you to the Perth -> Singapore Shuttle! Fly from Perth Airport to Singapore Changi Airport with full ATC from 0800z-1600z on the 17th of April 2021! What is a 'Shuttle' Event? A shuttle event is where we invite pilots and controllers to fly from the defined departure airport, to the defined arrival airport with the expectation of full ATC along the way! We invite you to depart from Perth Airport (YPPH) between 0800Z-1000z on the 17th of April 2021, inbound to Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS) , as we attempt to test out our talented controlling team! Below you will find the recommended route between the two airfields, as well as information for your departure and arrival! Route: VATPAC, VATSEA, Indonesia VACC and Singapore VACC recommend the following route when flying between Perth and Singapore. YPPH -> WSSS: ROUTE: PH AVNEX N752 PLB G579 REPOV SIN DEPARTURE: AVNEX3 (ALL RUNWAYS) ARRIVAL: Expect REPOV1A or REPOV1B Remember the departure slot for YPPH is between 0800z- 1000z! Departure From Perth: Pilots departing from Perth Airport (YPPH), can expect to depart from either RWY 03 or RWY 21, depending on wind direction and traffic levels. Click here to find all charts for YPPH. Arrival Into Singapore: Upon Arrival into Singapore Changi Airport (WSSS), pilots can expect either the REPOV1A or REPOV1B followed by a choice of RNAV, VOR, ILS, or Visual approach (Weather Permitting) into either Runways 02(L/C) or 20R. ATC will assign the approach type nominated in the ATIS but you may request a different approach type if you are up for the challenge. We ask that you are familiar with the approach type you select. If you are unfamiliar with these operations you can request vectors from the Approach controller to ensure you capture the localiser. Click here to find all charts for WSSS. Flying in Oceanic Airspace: Normal ATC throughout Australia (Brisbane Centre, Melbourne Centre, Sydney Approach, etc.) rely on radar to determine where an aircraft is in the air. Over the ocean, there is no radar. This non-radar airspace is controlled by oceanic ATC. All Oceanic Controlled Airspace in Australia is controlled from Brisbane, so all oceanic controllers in Australia are called "Brisbane Radio", there is no "Melbourne Radio", so ML-IND_FSS is called "Brisbane Radio". One of the significant differences between radar and Oceanic flying is the need for position reports. Position reports are how ATC can determine where you are. Position reports contain estimates for waypoints, speeds, altitudes and any other information. Because there is no radar over the ocean, ATC relies on time-based separation and reports from the pilots. ATC has no way of determining where you are unless you specifically tell them. The standard format is: Current/Previous waypoint name and the time which you crossed that point. Current flight level. Mach number if assigned by ATC. Your next waypoint and estimate for that point. The waypoint after that. For example: "Qantas 123 is position PLUGA at time 0523, flight level 380, estimating VELKU at 0750, SASRO next." You can use the Oceanic Reporting Tool to help construct oceanic position reports. Find more information here.
