    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 these events to even greater altitudes. Expect to see VH-DLL flying these events for many years to come! 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 : YGWA YMEG YSYN YMBD WARR DMW YPPF 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.

Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 175 nm Est Flight Time : approx 85 mins Aircraft : Twin rotary engined tail dragger aircraft such as Douglas DC3/C47 or similar. Altitude : Remain below Adelaide CTA steps Flightplan File as : YKSC EMU EDITH YYOR YMIN YWDI YMLD YPWF DUB RMH OHB YPPF GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful 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 plan. 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.

    Event Details Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 155 nm Est Flight Time : approx 85 mins Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias. Communications Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. FSCopilot/FSInn VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. Swift Swift is a recent VATSIM Pilot Client alternative now released to the public as a beta release candidate. This pilot client is a one fits all alternative and will work with FSX, P3D V3/V4 and XPlane in either 32 bit Windows or 64 bit Windows, Mac and Linux. This client, once installed and configured (not for the faint of heart - some guidance can be found in this video tutorial for those with X-Plane on Windows x64), also provides a capability for pilots to designate a private voice channel to allow communication with other pilots in the same voice channel. However, to do this requires a frequency over ride to be set allowing the client to ignore the set frequency instead providing text entry into a text box. Into this box the name of the voice room needs to be entered to enable voice communication. A voice room is typically in the form of "some.server.org/<Airport ICAO>". The server component is ALWAYS "rw1.vatpac.org". So this week's departure would use "rw1.vatpac.org/<Airport ICAO>". For airports without an airport ICAO it is typical to use VATPAC VFR Virtual voice room acccessed using 131.25 in FSINN. The equivalent for SWIFT is "rw1.vatpac.org/virtualvfr".

    Event Details Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight. Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations. Distance : 160 nm Est Flight Time : approx 85 mins Aircraft : Single or twin engine aircraft such as Beechcraft Baron, Mooney Bravo or similar capable of 155 to 185 kias. Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link. For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.
