Transcon Panic Stations

17-Aug-2019 03:00

Backed by popular demand, the Events Department invite you to a spinoff of the popular VATPAC Panic Stations Event. This time, it's Trans-Continental. Whether you like flying a 717, 737 or even Dash 8s, this event is for you.

Depart Alice Springs Airport (YBAS,) Melbourne International Airport (YMML,) or Sydney International Airport (YSSY) bound for Perth International Airport (YPPH) with the expectation of full ATC services for 7 Hours from 0300z - 1000z.

Event Details:
Panic Stations is a simple, yet quite challenging event. Get as many aircraft flying to the destination airport as possible, with only one objective. Arrive at or after the target time. Well, until the next panic stations event that is.

VATPAC is putting a spin on the traditional Panic Stations Event. Instead of only providing ATC for the arrival airfields, VATPAC is providing services for Alice Springs (YBAS,) Melbourne (YMML) or Sydney (YSSY) as possible departure points. Additionally, we are going Transcontinental. Depart in the east, enjoy the slow sun setting as you wiz your way towards the west coast along with a large number of other pilots, all with the same goal. Pilots can expect full ATC Services from 0300z - 1000z at all four airfields and expect full ENR coverage across the continent.
This time, we have two different titles for people to win, these being;
JET & NON-JET Winner (From either YBAS/YMML/YSSY)
JET/NON-JET Winner (Anywhere other than the departure points.)
To create more of a challenge, we invite pilots to fly from Flukeys FIFO airports and WA airport packs to take out the second title.
Touchdown time for this event is 0900z. However, expect heavy delays as we try and accommodate everyone whilst maintaining separation. We look forward to seeing you all there!
