Bays Sector

The Bay's sector contains 3 tower controlled aerodromes and for this Sunday Night Ops, fly from Wellington to one of the Bay Sector aerodromes in your turboprop aircraft or maybe even a B737 or A320. 

The real life routes are flown by ATR72's and Q300's although all airports are capable of handling A320's and Boeing 737's. If you want to fly light aircraft fly between any of the Bay Sector airports in any direction. 

Rotorua has spectacular views of the lake on final while in Tauranga you will overfly either the ocean of the harbour on final approach. Wellington can be a challenging approach with high winds and a short runway.
