I want to give as many people an opportunity to attend, also some people can try their hand at ATC. Sydney is normally fairly ‘nimrod’ free and if there is any problems then there will be enough people there to ‘report & ghost’.

Happy Landings

What time is it in Australia

Depends on where you are in Australia, would have to google it to know exactly but it will be Good Friday morning if its Thursday Night in Europe.

Finally an event that is not at 2:00 am for me! I am definitely coming! Hope others come as well! :)

Great! looking forward to seeing you there!

FYI the time has moved back 1 hr to 2100 GMT!

Will I be able to get the flight time from this event added to my account?

You mean to file a PIREP with Qantas Virtual?

Yes you can, use your QFA number as your Call Sign (I will be in QFA 14) and for filing a PIREP use QFA 9400 (which is a YSSY-YSSY on the Dash 8 training fight).

I wish I could come, but I am fairly new to infinite flight and I don’t think I’m ready for the ATC playground yet. My crosswind landings especially need alot of work! Lol I might try it when I reach grade three…we’ll see! Have a wonderful time all of you and God bless!😊

I would like to be there but not 100 persent sure :)

Hoping to make this David (QFA0049)
