The VATSIM events team has announced the start of a new regular event - Australia Tour!

What is Australia Tour?

Australia Tour is a new fortnightly event that aims to tour Australia’s airports and show this country’s beauty. Every fortnight you’ll be starting another leg of the Australia wide flight! The tour will start in Sydney and end in Sydney commencing in January and ending in November! With 23 legs touring every state of the country you’ll experience the many different areas, from the booming south east to the dusty west, there will be something for everyone!

Just as a note if you are running any Simulator based upon Microsoft's Flight Simulator X platform, due to the older navigation database, Coffs most likely will be known as YSCH not YCFS, this is its old ICAO.

If you are uncertain or unsure how to operate within a procedural tower's airspace as an IFR aircraft, more information can be found here.

If you have any questions or feedback, Please post in the the Event Discussion Forum. We hope to see you there! :D
