  13. A new Brisbane Local Instructions has been released, along with an amendment to MATS to include Independent Parallel Approaches. The Documents Page lists the latest documents for controllers and pilots. What's new in the latest Brisbane Local Instructions? Parallel Runway Operations (PROPS) Dependent Parallel Approaches (IMC) Independent Parallel Approaches (IMC) Simultaneous Opposite Direction Parallel Runway Operations (SODPROPS) Brisbane TCU airspace ownership update SID/STAR assignment updates for Brisbane and Gold Coast airports Amberley Coordination Military Operations in Restricted Areas A First for VATPAC! - Independent Parallel Approach Finals Monitoring Independent Parallel Approaches (IPA) in IMC will require finals monitoring by the Approach Controller responsible for the final approach path. If daytime and VMC exists at 5NM, the Tower is responsible for visual monitoring from 5NM. What does this mean for Approach and Tower Controllers? You will need to comply with the IPA requirements detailed in the Brisbane Local Instructions and the amended MATS , including the display of the No Transgression Zone (NTZ). The Brisbane NTZ is already included in AIRAC 2103 sector and data files. What about Pilots? The ATIS will advise INDEP PARL APCH IN PROG and the approach controller will advise that "Finals Monitoring" is in use. Make sure you accurately establish and maintain your aircraft on a precision approach procedure (ILS, RNAV-Z or -X) for your assigned runway. Understand and comply with the "Deviation" and "Breakout" instructions from ATC. See the Brisbane Local Instructions for examples. Common sense is required If traffic is light and no conflict exists, there is no need for a "Deviation" or "Breakout" procedure. Where Brisbane Finals (BMN) is not active, Brisbane Approach (BAN/BAS) should revert to Dependent Parallel Approaches if workload does not allow for effective finals monitoring. If no approach controller is active, Independent Parallel Approaches can not be activated by the Tower. We have plans to introduce Finals Monitoring for Sydney Independent Parallel Approaches after reviewing their use at Brisbane and making any necessary adjustments.

    No big deal as it's still in our radar client data files, but the overhead YWLM VFR route was removed in the 5 Nov 20 VTC. I missed it, but it will be removed from the radar clients on 28 January 2021

  19. If you use the VATPAC Euroscope Package you can quickly update the default VATSIM server used: just run the VATPAC Profile Updater (Under VATPAC in the Windows start menu), select the server you want to use and all your profiles will be updated. There is no need to re-enter your login details if these haven't changed.
  20. Unfortunately I made an error in both the VATSpy and ServInfo files (CVN was not part of DOS) published in the NOTAM above. This has been fixed and the files on the server and in the NOTAM links above have been replaced. If you downloaded the files since the publishing of the NOTAM above and before 0725Z 22 Oct 2019, please download them again. My apologies for any inconvenience.

  25. 1. INTRODUCTION: 1.1 Elements of RAAFvirtual.org (VSOA) and Virtual United States Navy (VSOA)will be conducting a wide range of military/formation flying training in the airspace surrounding RAAFv Base Amberley. 1.2 Training period begins on the 22th July 2019 0000z and will self-cancel on 31st August 2019 2359z as follows: · Airspaces will be active for the duration of the NOTAM period 1.3 The Training will involve F/A18, E737, KC30A, C17A, C130/C30J, C27J, B350, P8, F22, F35 and PC-21 aircraft operating from RAAFv Base Amberley. 2. AIRSPACE ACTIVATION 2.1 For the duration of the NOTAM, activity is anticipated for the entire time period as set out in 1.2. 2.2 The following Temporary Modified Restricted and AAR, AEW&C airspace are established at Amberley (YAMB), and will be activated by NOTAM: a. YAMB/R625D CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA1 (Transit) LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix VERTICAL LIMITS: 8500– F210 CONTROLLING AUTHORITY: If online AMB_APP, otherwise Range Control Authority (see below) b. YAMB/R639 (A, B, C &D) CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA2 (Transit) LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix VERTICAL LIMITS: 10000 – F280 CONTROLLING AUTHORITY: Range Control Authority (see below) c.

YAMB/R650A & B CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA3 (Primary) LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix VERTICAL LIMITS: 5000 – F280 CONTROLLING AUTHORITY: Range Control Authority (see below) 3. AIRSPACE ACTIVATION TIMING. 3.1 Training Sorties are planned to take place throughout the period of activation 4. FLIGHT PLANNING AND ROUTE LIMITATIONS. 4.1 All waypoints inside exercise lateral boundaries will be available at and above FL390 – R637 FL220 – R625 FL290 – R639, R644, R650 4.2 RA Conditional Status Legend RA1: Pilots may flight plan through the restricted area and expect a clearance from ATC RA2: Pilots must not flight plan through a restricted area unless on a route specified in ERSA GEN FPR, however a clearance from ATC is not assured. RA3: Pilots must not flight plan through a restricted area. Clearance is unlikely and will be subject to Military activity. 5. PROCEDURES 5.1 Military pilots are present in the activated Restricted Areas (VSOA in flight plan remarks) 5.1.1 Pilots: If unable to conduct flights without transiting the Restricted Areas at or above the levels in para 4.1 BN-DOS_CTR active: contact Brisbane Centre on 135.6 who will coordinate with the Range Controller to arrange access – note rerouting may be required to avoid an area with RA2 or RA3 Conditional Status. BN-DOS_CTR not active: contact the Range Controller (via private message). 5.1.2 Range Controller Contact: If access is required, contact the Range Controller callsign in the following order: WGTL***, BUCK***, COLT*** 5.2 Military pilots are not present in the activated Restricted Areas 5.2.1 Pilots and ATC: There are no restrictions on accessing the activated Restricted Areas. 6. MILITARY AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS 6.1 High speed military jet & turboprop aircraft will be on random tracks without communications within all exercise airspace. Traffic information will not be provided to or about exercise aircraft operating in exercise area. (Intentions may be handed to ATC by the flight lead on a flight by flight basis) 6.2 Aircraft operating out of Amberley (YAMB) will operate on the appropriate CTAF channels when ATC is not online. 6.3 When outside CTAF areas, military aircraft will tune UNICOM until established within active restricted airspace. Upon entering active restricted airspace military aircraft will be virtually NOCOM. (See para 6.4) 6.4 Regardless of the phase of flight, military aircraft will endeavour to monitor UNICOM text (122.800) for mutual separation when ATC is offline. 6.5 The below list outlines the civil frequencies that military aircraft will operate on when outside of restricted airspace. Location Frequency YAMB TWR: 118.30 YAMB APP: 134.600 All Other (UNICOM) 7. PRIORITIES 7.1 During exercise activity periods, access to the exercise airspace may not be available due to high density/high energy military operations. 7.2 Every endeavour will be made to adjust exercise activities and minimize delays to facilitate transit of civil aircraft. 8. CANCELLATION 8.1 This NOTAM will self-cancel on 31st August 2019 9. DISTRIBUTION 9.1 VATPAC Forums/Website 9.2 RAAFvirtual Forums/Website 10.
