Auckland Real Ops

Get ready for an afternoon of non-stop action as VATNZ presents Auckland Real Ops. Auckland Airport saw over 13,000 aircraft movements in July as the airport starts to expanded with an increase in passenger movements by 12% over the previous month. Auckland is therefore the biggest airport in New Zealand, so prepare yourself to be one of over 200 flights leaving or arriving at Auckland in this single afternoon.

Book one of the 200+ flights on the second tab of the event page and prepare to experience a full ATC experience from Delivery to Center. A full flight plan has been provided as per the real world, although we understand that not everyone has all the aircraft involved, therefore feel free to book the slot and use any similar aircraft. A gate has been provided for all International and Domestic departures including an estimated time, please be punctual and use the allocated slots to your best ability.

The daily schedule at Auckland has everything from a 16 hour flight to Dubai or maybe a 30 minute hop to Great Barrier Island, so get ready and book a flight that suits your time frame, it might be 1 flight or several. Come along and support the event making the Air Traffic Controllers work hard! Remember that the real flight schedule is always changing so if there is a flight that is not listed please let us know at and we will try and add that. This event is designed to replicate the real schedule as close as possible but remember it will not be perfect.

Book your flights and we will see you all in our virtual skies!
