  7. Hi everyone, A significant change has been made in the structure of VATSIM, effective from today. VATPAC is no longer a member of VATSIM Oceania (VATOCE). We now fall under the jurisdiction of the Vice President of Asia Pacific, who of course, is looking after the Asia Pacific regions of VATSIM. Whilst I have not yet had the chance to formally discuss with Anastatisia, I would like to warmely welcome him to the role and look forward to working with him in the future. I'd also like to make a special mention to Jackson Harding, who has been involved in both senior VATPAC and VATSI
  8. I am regreftully advising that I received a resignation from Ben O'Leary a few weeks ago. Ben was instrumental in the past few months, working closely with Callum on making significant improvements to VATPAC's social media precence and engagement. I want to personally thank Ben for his efforts and it was a shame we only had a short time together. The Scope (which you will have all received this evening), is another one of Ben's achievements that is reaching the community. Blair Shaddock is covering the responsibilities of the Community Engagment Department for the time being and has

  10. Hi Everyone, It's with sadness that I have to announce Cam Tyson has resigned from the VATPAC Board. Thankfully, he's not going far, as Cam has accepted the role of Training Syllabus Director at VATNZ! I want to thank Cam for his exceptional contribution to VATPAC over the last few years and I'm sure that Callum would echo my thoughts. Cam has made huge strides in the VATPAC Training Department and I know his legacy will be continued by a keen, new Director in the near future (ready your resume's if you are interested in these roles). Will Smart, current Deputy Director of ATC T
