  1. Gentlemen: The staff of the Pacific Airways Virtual Airline has asked me to contact you regarding an ongoing event that will involve your airspace during the next 9-10 days. They have initiated repetitive relief flights from the U.S. which will be arriving at Christchurch, New Zealand as a result of the flooding in Australia. These flights will be all "heavies" and will include legs from KMIA-KLAX, KLAX-PHNL, PHNL-NSTU, NSTU-NZCH. Similar past events such as Haiti Relief saw a substantial number of flights in the air, with participation sufficient to result in a fair ATC workload where available. This sequence commences on Saturday, January 8 and terminates on Sunday, January 16 (US time). This VA is quite active on VATSIM and is always appreciative of ATC services when they are received. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or you may contact the airline's VP of Events, Jason Wadsworth at [email protected] Thank you for your cooperation.

  4. Cross the Ditch is brought to you by VATPAC and VATNZ. For sixteen hours this December, the skies over the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand will be filled with aircraft all on a mission to Cross the Ditch. An example of that typical down-under understatement, this "ditch" is over 1100nm wide. The three flight routes - each between a pair of major cities on opposite sides of the Tasman - range from three to four-and-a-half hours flight time. Throughout the event, the Oceania region's two divisions will providing full gate-to-gate ATC coverage, making this the Southern Hemisphere's premiere oceanic event. City Pairs Auckland NZAA and Melbourne YMML Wellington NZWN and Sydney YSSY Christchurch NZCH and Brisbane YBBN The event will consist of flights in both directions between these pairs throughout the day. Calling all Pilots and Controllers Book your flight via the dedicated website http://avigation.net/events/crosstheditch/ Pilot information: Cross the Ditch pilots are required to utilize "Oceanic Position Reporting". To standardise these reports please use the VATNZ Oceanica Position Reporting Tool. Simply fill-in the details and read the formatted report. Please note that "online" the information from temperature down is not required. Selective Calling (pronounced Sell Call) is a pair of audible tones sent to alert pilots ATC wants to contact them. FSInn users will find this option under the INN control panel > settings > basic. Choose the tones from the drop down lists and add to your persistant header eg. SELCAL/AGDM. This persistant header is essential as this allows ATC to activate your Sell Call Squak Box Selcal - Setup http://www.vatnz.net/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=47&Itemid=28
