We look forward to seeing you at VATPAC's spinoff Panic Stations event!
Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 03:00 to 10:00

Backed by popular demand, the Events Department invite you to a spinoff of the popular acclaimed VATPAC Panic Stations Event, this time, it's Trans-Continental! Whether you like flying a B717, B737 or even DH8Ds, 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 to enjoy bragging rights... 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 Services for the arrival airfields, VATPAC is providing services for Alice Springs Airport (YBAS,) Melbourne International Airport (YMML,) or Sydney International Airport (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 as you! Pilots can expect full ATC Services from 0300z - 1000z at all 4 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.)

This has been done in order 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.

Touch Down Time for this event is 0900z

However, expect heavy delays as we try and accommodate everyone whilst maintaining separation standards! We look forward to seeing you all there!
