  4. 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. VFR Coordinator Russell Diehl (VH-DLL) Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 103 nm Est Flight Time : approx 80 mins Aircraft : Single piston engine aircraft such as Cessna 172 or similar capable of 105 to 125 kias. Altitude : Carefully negotiate Adelaide CTA until clear to the south then remain below the steps thereafter. Flightplan File as : YPPF SKI NON-STD-COASTAL PNL YHTF YADG CAPE.JERVIS YPRS YGWA GPS Flightplan is available for FSX, P3D, FS2020 as a 'pln' file and X-Plane as an 'fms' file. The original Plan-G flightplan is also included for those that find this useful. These are all enclosed within a Zip archive. Navigation : Pilots familiar with the area can navigate visually, for those less familiar the accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight. NOTE : If scenery precludes the jetties along the coastal beaches then consider flying an aircraft that supports the GPS flightplans so the positions of the jetties will be obvious. Communications Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients. Pilots also should read this post regarding the implications of using VATSIM UNICOM for CTAF. It provides some insight into potential pitfalls for the unwary when monitoring 122.80 in a CTAF environment.

For this flight we depart Parafield to the north via Saint Kilda before turning south and transiting Adelaide controlled airspace along the coast. This requires an ATC clearance (usually from Ground) arranged whilst stationary on the apron prior to departure in much the same manner as clearance to transit Adelaide airspace via the Hope Valley Reservoir is obtained. A coastal transit isn't typically granted to GA and is more usually provided to beach patrol aircraft. Since this transit crosses the departure/approach path to Adelaide's main 05/23 runway the coastal transit is divided into transition segments using beach jetties as boundaries and excellent visual reference points. ATC will not clear aircraft into a segment until it is vacant of aircraft. ATC will issue pilots holding orbits when unable to clear them to proceed. Parafield aerodrome has a layout that can precipitate unintended runway incursions, most prevalently by unwary pilots transiting taxiway B. There are two undershoots to rwys 26L/26R that require clearance to cross, one of which is the threshold holding point for runway 21R. Most pilots familiar with Parafield typically request taxying via F to the run-up bay and then taxying to the 21R threshold via A and A4. Even this has some local considerations. Pilots routinely will hold position and give way to aircraft on approach or departing 21R/03L when transiting taxiway F. Air Services Australia offer a handy fact sheet TIPS FOR FLYING AT PARAFIELD and provides valuable insight into operating at Parafield.

  7. Welcome to the latest VATPAC Iron Mic attempt featuring Adelaide. Adelaide receives many passenger flights, charters and GA flights everyday from a variety destinations around Australia and many other countries from Oceania, Asia and the Middle East. With such a variety of routes, its perfect for anything so make sure our controllers are working hard! The following positions will be the primary positions: AD_TWR AD_APP ML-TBD_CTR To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Adelaide prior to occupying others. Remember, There are no reserved positions so if one of the above positions is available, logon! What is Iron Mic? Iron Mic is a weekly competition that VATSIM holds to recognises the positions with the most hours logged on the network over the week. It is broken into 3 categories; TWR, APP and CTR. The position in each category that logs the most online hours over a 7 day period wins the Iron Mic. Iron Mic runs from 0000z on Monday to 2359z on Sunday (0859 Monday AEDT) How do we know about our progress? Click on this link (http://fsmine.dhis.org/stats/showstats.cgi) to view all the VATSIM ATC stats for the week. Remember, Our aim is to keep the TWR, APP and CTR positions open as much as possible. Coordinate with other controllers to ensure maximum coverage of the Cairns positions. You can do this on Facebook, Teamspeak or via Forums. VATSIM has set out a few rules regarding Iron Mic which can be viewed here https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11100 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Good Luck VATPAC!
  8. After some time, Our focus month program will be returning for January! For the month, all scheduled events will be exploring South Australia. This will enable pilots and air traffic controllers to experience South Australia and explore places they haven’t before. With plenty of aerodromes both controlled and uncontrolled and a variety of different environments, you’ll surely find something new! ATC should read up on all of the procedures local to the airport they're controlling at, especially if you are controlling somewhere new! Everything you need to know about airspace can be found in the Airspace section of the VATPAC website https://vatpac.org/operations/documents/ and all other charts and information can be found via the Airservices Australia website, available here. Stay tuned for individual event information through the calendar. If you have any questions, suggestions or feedback, Please direct it to https://vatpac.org/about-us/feedback/
