North Island Madness

Fly your favourite aircraft between Auckland & Wellington in either direction. The challenge is to fill all of the positions for this event and fly either one, two or possible even three times between the North Islands' two largest cities. Both airports are equiped with an ILS approach however that does not make the night easy as you can expect strong winds in the captial, speed restrictions and other challenges along the way.
