    Apologies pilots. I had to publish a completely different flight plan at the last minute. Sadly, I neglected to consider differences in scenery and discovered that scenery for Lake George now reflects real world where there is no water in the lake. As such, a complete re-think was required whereby the flight now requires planes to depart with a full payload. After dumping the lot planes are redirected to a confirmed source of water to continue the flight. The return to Canberra now flies via Lake George where all can see for themselves the dry lake for themselves. Rusty.

    Event Details As my final official VATPAC VFR Operations event, this flight will begin from Goolwa, a home away from home returning to my home airport of Parafield. Departing Goolwa the flight overflies the series of five barrages that keeps the lower Murray free of salt. The flight continues via Murray Bridge and the Barossa Valley returning to Parafield from the North East. VFR Coordinator Russell Diehl Many thanks to pilots, controllers and VATPAC staff for supporting these events these past many years and hope they continue to do so as Dave Bromage takes control and advances the
  3. Event Details As the penultimate official VATPAC VFR Operations event, this flight will begin from my home airport of Parafield and at the discretion of ATC services attempt to fly from the Northern to Souther Adelaide beaches at low level. This requires clearance to fly and if the airspace is busy can be denied requiring pilots to seek the alternate Hope Valley VFR Route. Ultimately this flight follows the coast around Adelaide's Fleurieu Peninsula to the Mouth of the Murray Goolwa, my home away from home.

    For those that downloaded the GPS files before Friday 15th Jan then consider downloading the set again. It was pointed out to me that the X-Plane 11 flightplan had an incorrect ICAO for Camden Haven airfield, a hold over of legacy FSX scenery. If you find your GPS is directing you to an airfield in WA then this is what has happened. Ignore the false path and redirect the plane to "The Lakes YLKS" and expect to overfly Camden Haven 3nm short of YLKS. Thanks to Scotty Galloway for alerting me to this issue. Rusty

    Event Details Aerial Fire Suppression Training Exercise - Snowy Mountains NOTE : This special event comes at the cost of multi-simulator support. This event requires installation of custom scenery that overlays smoke targets onto existing X-Plane 11 scenery. FS2020 lacks the ability for aircraft to dump and load additional payloads. P3D does support this however the author of this flight lacks a copy of the simulator and more importantly its "Software Development Kit", the component that allows for the creation of customised P3D scenery.

    Event Details Aerial Fire Suppression Training Exercise - Vicinity of Canberra - XP11 pilots should install accompanying scenery using the link provided. NOTE : This special event comes at the cost of multi-simulator support. This event is intended to be conducted with the aid of a custom piece of scenery that inserts some smoking targets into existing scenery.
