DailyFocus MondayDear Fellow Simmers...

I will be making regular flights in our Simulator, some of which will be made available to the public to join/fly every week or few weeks as time permits.

For example VatSim Australia run a regular Monday Night Milk Run (Sydney - Melbourne)

Monday Milk Run

By far the most popular of our regular weekly events, on any given Milk Run Monday you'll find the famous "J-Curve" between Melbourne and Sydney well serviced by both pilots and ATC.

Not to be confused with our Spilled Milk Run Monday events, details of which can be found on the Spilled Milk Run page, the Milk Run invites you to fly in any direction between Sydney and Melbourne and all destinations in between (Canberra, Albury etc).

Prefer to control? We recommend getting in early. ATC positions on Milk Run Monday are often scarce so definitely worth being an early bird.

Traffic levels traditionally start to pick up at around 7:30pm AEST / AEDT and generally peak between 8:30pm and 9:30pm AEST / AEDT.

Join us for a high traffic experience that often walks a fine line between silky smooth and borderline chaos :)


TMA suppliments are available for both:




Note new TMA arrangements concerning SY_DEP and ML_DEP

What is Australia Tour?

Australia Tour is a new fortnightly event that aims to tour Australia’s airports and show this country’s beauty. Every fortnight you’ll be starting another leg of the Australia wide flight! The tour will start in Sydney and end in Sydney commencing in January and ending in November! With 23 legs touring every state of the country you’ll experience the many different areas, from the booming south east to the dusty west, there will be something for everyone!

This Week (09/02/2019) 1800 AEDT – 2100 AEDT

This week we travel from beautiful coast of Brisbane up to Rockhampton, the beef capitol of Australia. On this Flight you'll be sure to get plenty of coastal views and the ability to test your skills flying into a procedural aerodrome. Rockhampton services everything from GA aircraft up to small jets, so no matter what your looking for Rocky's got it!
