Departure Airport: Melbourne Tullamarine (YMML)
Melbourne Airport (IATA: MEL, ICAO: YMML), colloquially known as Tullamarine Airport, is the primary airport serving the city of Melbourne, and the second busiest airport in Australia. It opened in 1970 to replace the nearby Essendon Airport. Melbourne Airport is the main international airport of the four airports serving the Melbourne metropolitan area, the other international airport being Avalon Airport.
The airport comprises four terminals: one international terminal, two domestic terminals and one budget domestic terminal. It is 23 kilometres (14 miles) northwest of the city centre, adjacent to the suburb of Tullamarine. The airport has its own suburb and postcode (Melbourne Airport, Victoria, 3045).
Arrival Airport: Launceston (YMLT)
Launceston Airport (IATA: LST, ICAO: YMLT) is a regional airport on the outskirts of Launceston, Tasmania. The airport is located in the rural area of Western Junction 15 km (9.3 mi) from Launceston city centre. It is Tasmania’s fastest growing airport, and the second busiest in the state, after Hobart International Airport; it can also run as a curfew free airport. In the 2007/2008 financial year, the airport had a record 1.1 million passengers, up 10% on the previous year; 255,000 passengers passed through the airport in the three months to 30 September, up 7% on the previous year. 309,000 passengers passed through in January – March 2008, the highest ever number in a calendar quarter, up 11% on the previous year. It is currently Australia’s 13th busiest airport, handling 1,126,572 passengers in the 2008–09 financial and 1,124,000 passengers in the 2009–10 financial year. The total number of passenger movements through Launceston Airport is projected to increase annually by 2.7 per cent during the forecast period to 2,000,000 in 2030–31. The expected growth rate reflects slower forecast longer term economic growth in Australia, the maturation of the impact of low-cost carriers on passenger movement growth and an expected increase in domestic airfares.

Airport: YMML (Melbourne Tullamarine)
Aircraft: Qantaslink Q400 | Jetstar A320 | Virgin Australia 737-800
For this event to run smoothly, we ask all participants to:
~ Maintain at least 10NM of separation at all times
~ Allow all Qantaslink aircraft to depart before anybody else is able to pushback. This is due to the speed of the Q400 compared to the A320 and 737-800.
~ Immediately despawn after you’ve landed in Launceston, and have shut down your engines. This is to make room for other inbound aircraft, as there are only 6 gates in Launceston.
~ Most of all, have fun!
