Worldflight 2013 passes through New Zealand Airspace for almost 14 hours all up in the early hours of Sunday 10 November 2013 (NZ Time).
The teams are due to depart NTAA (Tahiti, French Polynesia) at about 13:20UTC (02:20 local NZDT) and head into VATNZ airspace en route to NCRG (Rarotonga, Cook Islands) arriving there sometime around 15:20UTC (04:20 local NZDT).
Leaving NCRG (Rarotonga, Cook Islands) at about 16:10UTC (05:10 local NZDT) they head for the next stop in VATNZ airspace, NFTF (Fua'amotu, Tonga), landing around 18:40UTC (07:40 local NZDT).
Next it's off to the nation's capital NZWN (Wellington, New Zealand), departing Tonga about 19:30UTC (08:30 local NZDT) crossing the Pacific Ocean, overhead Auckland and into Wellington, arriving around 23:00UTC (midday Sunday local NZDT) where it will be interesting seeing them all land with the limited parking at Wellington.
