Auckland Virtual Ops

This weekend  VATNZ have organised an event with the local virtual airlines.

Fly into or out of Auckland International Airport (NZAA) to any destination or hub that your virtual airline flies to, each airline is allocated a set of gates depending on their airline size. If you are participating in the event you must use the gates and stands allocated to your airline. Each airline will have a different method of organising their gates. 

The Virtual Airline competition will be the most aircraft movements around Auckland per gate. A flight must leave the Auckland TMA to count as a flight and must be completed. 

Please have your virtual airline in your remarks, also on first contact with ground please advise which gate you will be wanting to taxi to.

Pilots not part of a Virtual Airline or one that is not listed are encouraged to participate using one of the 'non-event stands'. Would be good to see everyone in Auckland!

The official gate allocation map will become available approximately one week before the event. If any VA is interested in getting gates please email Advise how many gates your VA wants. 

ATC will be rostered so please email me ( your availability and position preferences. 

To assist with position reports, feel free to use the Oceanic Reporting Tool.
