Thread: Where do I find VOR information for Australia\Victoria

    Default Where do I find VOR information for Australia\Victoria

    I would like to practise VOR navigation, for example, from Melbourne to regional Victoria but I can't seem to find a good reference to VOR charts for Australia. Does anyone know where to find this info?

    Searching the web for "australia VORs" I found:

    https://www.pilotnav.com/browse/nava...ntry/AUSTRALIA

    but not much else.

    J.D.,

    Turns out that SkyVector does show at least the Melbourne VOR on 114.1 MHz. And below the SkyVector image is an au.gov website link which gives me the impression that VOR navigation is something you learn other ways than from a chart, unless they are on the WACS, which cover the country.

    This says something about charts, but not what. Requires sign-up:

    Perhaps there are few enough VORs in Australia, that one learns them as needed by flight with the help of local knowledge, like the airport manager? That Airport guide didn't say anything about aids to navigation.

    I hope this helps.

    'Glichy' controls or switches and don't want to pay for new ones? Read on... You can bring a controller back to life by exercising it through it's full range of motion or from maximum to minimum and back again 50 times. I had a Logitech joystick that gave left rudder without touching it but turning it 50X fixed it.
