Nelson Overload

We are teaming up with NZA Simulations to bring you a Nelson Overload!

This special one off Sunday event comes with a little something extra.

Come and fly in and out of Nelson for the duration of the event. Fly everything from little Cessna 152s to Sounds Air Caravans and all the way up to Dash 8s and ATRs.

Your mission is to overload Nelson with as much traffic as possible.

For this event we have teamed up with NZA Simulations to bring you something special.
NZA Simulations recently released their Nelson ProlineTM scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

While some of you may already have it, for those who don't we have 2 copies to give away as part of this event!

To be eligable to enter you must currently own FS2020, must not already have the NZA Nelson scenery and must either arrive at, depart from or provide ATC for Nelson during the event.

In addition to flying or controlling, you must also submit your entry using the following form before the end of the event at this link:

The giveaway of these two copies will be overseen by the VATNZ Board. The two lucky winners will be drawn at random from the entries using the following Randomizer service:


ATC will be rostered on by the Events Director for this event.

To apply please use the applications tab above. Applications will close at the end of the Monday before the event.

Any listed positions not filled by rostered ATC will become free for all after the roster is published
