    WorldFlight 2020 It's that time of year again! What is WorldFlight? WorldFlight is one of the longest running events on VATSIM to date. It's a week long event with plenty of aircraft who make their way from Sydney, around the world and back again, all in the name of charity. Aircraft will depart Sydney on the 1st at 8:00am AEDT (2100z) and arrive a week later on the 7th at 8:35pm AEDT (0935z). With full ATC along the way, all VATSIM members are invited along to join in from home. For more information on WorldFlight or to make a donation, please head to the WorldFlight website. https://www.worldflight.com.au/ ATC requirements Although World Flight has a team of Global controllers to mange the traffic on the legs outside of for the rest of the world, who may not have the active controllers to manage the traffic, VATPAC is looking for controllers available for the departure and arrival days to manage the traffic within our airspace. ATC applications To apply for ATC please find the applications page below. https://events.vatpac.org/worldflight-2020-outbound https://events.vatpac.org/worldflight-2020-inbound Pilot Briefings Pilot briefings will be provided on the above links and throughout NOTAM's on the forums. Please keep your eyes peeled!
  7. Welcome to Theo who has joined the ranks as a Tower Controller. Coming to a tower near you
  8. Wow! I strive to get as much feedback as you James! God Bless you! @Zach Biesse-Fitton Just making sure you didn't miss this
  9. Welcome to WorldFlight 2020 Worldflight Australia is a virtual round the world flight to raise money for the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service. The concept of a virtual, round the world flight for charity was started by a team in the United Kingdom and has spawned an annual event with participants all over the globe. World Flight Australia was started in 2001 and over the years, World Flight Australia teams have raised over $220,000 for the RFDS, helping with the costs of avionics and providing funding for Fly Around Clinics in the essential Air Ambulances used to ferry nurses, doctors and patients around rural Australia. VATSIM Australia Pacific provides ATC within the VATPAC Airspace during Worldflight. Worldflight departs and arrives in Sydney each year, travelling through several airports within the VATPAC Airspace. Pilot information will be published on the event page and forums prior to Friday 30th of October. Outbound ATC Applications Open ATC Applications for the outbound legs of WorldFlight are now open. We invite all interested controllers to nominate their availability and get involved in the busiest event through the VATPAC Airspace. We usually see well in excess of 100 aircraft movements on the first few legs. Thanks to the large amount of sectors through our airspace this year, we have up to 39 positions which need controlling across a period of 15 hours. While the slots are 1 hour in length, we would prefer to keep controllers on single positions for at least 2-3 hours to limit interruption to pilots. This will be subject to availability. Apply Here: https://events.vatpac.org/worldflight-2020-outbound The ATC Roster for the outbound legs will be published by Monday 26th of October. ATC Applications for the inbound legs will open within 7 days. If you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to reach out via forum PM or email [email protected]
  10. I'm honoured you chose to use your last 3 digit post on my thread buddy! I learnt from the best
  11. This has been a huge change that has been coming for some time. It's definitely a step in the right direction as it brings the community closer to the people who lead it. I wanted to say a few words to recognise two people who have contributed greatly to the Region through their respective roles. Jackson has also been involved in the Division and VATSIM for as long as I can remember. When I started back in 2011, Jackson was the Division Director of VATPAC and over the years, moved through to the Regional Director position before joining the BoG. His dedication to his roles on the Network have seen the Division and Region grow and although we've had our differences, I appreciate all the assistance you've provided me. I hope to see you hanging around Tahiti in the future Alan came into the Division at a very turbulent time and he hit the ground running. It certainly hasn't been an easy run but he's handled all of the curveballs perfectly and continued to maintain stability. Alan, your assistance, wisdom and guidance in a variety of situations has been greatly appreciated and I hope you stick around and come flying through the VATPAC airspace soon. I was shocked to hear about your medical episode and I wish you all the best for a speedy recovery and healthy future. Finally, we have such a great community. Regardless of who's leading it, the people in it are the ones who make it as great as it is. Alan and Jackson will always be a part of that and I look forward to seeing both of you for many years to come
  12. Great work Rowan! You were on the ball last night!
