[07JUN20 0400z - 1100z] Transcon Shuttle Cairns

Recommended Posts


VATPAC invites you to a new event based on a previous spin-off - The Transcon Shuttle. Whether you like doing a 4.5hr hop, or a 2hr hop - This event will cater for your needs! Provide passengers the opportunity to move from around the country to the tropical north! Fly from Perth International Airport (YPPH)Adelaide International Airport (YPAD) or Brisbane International Airport (YBBN) inbound for Cairns Airport (YBCS). Expect full ATC services for your trans-continental flight as you all hurdle your way towards Cairns to top up the city with passengers!


Event Details:
Transcon Shuttle is a new event designed to provide pilots with the opportunity to receive full ATC services as they cross the country from nominated departure locations, inbound chosen arrival aerodromes. This event was created after the tremendous feedback we received about our Transcon Panic Stations event that was conducted last year.

This round, we have provided you with three departure aerodromes with different flight times ranging from 4.5 -> 2hrs in length all inbound one arrival aerodrome. This event is designed to provide pilots with the opportunity to explore the country from three different locations, travel across the country, and arrive into one concentrated arrival aerodrome. Controllers get the opportunity to control new and exciting locations with larger levels of traffic, and create a sequence inbound to the arrival aerodrome.


Departure Window:
For each of the departure aerodromes, a 2 hour controller block has been rostered to provide ATC services to departure aircraft. You are recommended to depart during this time to arrive into Cairns during the arrival period. The rostered time for all aerodromes is below:

  • Perth: 0400z - 0600z
  • Adelaide: 0500z - 0700z
  • Brisbane: 0600z - 0800z
  • Cairns: 0800z - 1100z


VATPAC recommends the following routes from the three departure aerodromes. Pilots are welcome to fly from other locations such as Hamilton Island or Sydney inbound to Cairns if they so wish!!!


YPPH - YBCS | 4.5 Hour Flight:

YPAD - YBCS| 3.5 Hour Flight:

YBBN - YBCS | 2 Hour Flight:


Controllers interested in controlling the event are encouraged to submit their ATC Applications here - Applications will remain open until 4 Days before the event date, of which the roster will be compiled on the website.

Dependent on the number of ATC Applications will ultimately persuade the number of controller positions that are eventually published and rostered. Positions that are planned to be rostered are below. Note: *NS* is Non-Standard Positions which will be rostered based on controller availability and position requirements
