Pacific Islands Link is Dead

Recommended Posts

Just established an account with you all and went to my specific region division (Oceana - Pacific Islands) to download some charts and lo and behold the site is down.

 

How long is it going to be down?

 

Also, I noticed that there are a lot of other dead links to charts and web sites in other parts (i.e. Chart Finder is dead) is VatSim going to be dead soon as well?

 

Thanks,

Martin

Hi!

No VATSIM isn't dying, just check you have the right link.

http://www.vatpac.org is the Pacific Region.

More Specifically http://www.vatpac.org/[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ist/?pg=pilot[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ist has the charts and routes.

The site http://chartfinder.vatsim.net currently doesn't have any Australian charts, but all the above links are working perfectly fine. If you cannot see them, check your security settings aren't blocking the site(s) and check your browser.

Martin,

 

I just checked chartfinder and its alive today as it has been over the past week - no issues at all. Currently it only supports USA, UK and some older Canadian stuff.

 

http://charts.vatsim.net/ is a more complete listing

 

In regards to the Pacific Island charts, the link, as with most of the others found here, are externally hosted. This is mentioned at the top of the page. As such, there will be occ[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ions when the source changes before the link is updated. This is the case with the Pacific charts.

Matt & Norman,

 

Thanks for your rapid replies!

 

Matt,

www.vatpac.org does not have any information about Oceana or the Pacific Islands. And the link to the charts that you gave me only contain Australia and NZ charts (thanks for those, by the way). What website would I go to for my region/division which is Oceana/Pacific Islands?

 

Norman,

Any idea when the Pacific Islands charts link will be updated? Was there something in the forums that I missed?

 

By the way, does ChartFinder only work with Internet Explorer? I seem to have been able to use it with Firefox about a week ago but not since.

 

Thanks again guys,

Martin

Martin,

 

The charts were on Pacific Sim's server. They are very much alive and well but I believe have recently changed their web address. I don't have the new one readily to hand.

 

As for it only working with IE - I dont know. I know I used to use only Firefox but since hcanging to VISTA I have yet to install it.
