Night Shift

VATNZ Welcomes Pilots back to the NZZC airspace in 2023 with the return of our iconic Night Shift Event! Join us on Sunday at 7 PM for our returning weekly event between Christchurch and Auckland.

Fly between the two main ports of New Zealand on Sunday as we staff the airspace covering Auckland, Christchurch and anywhere in-between, A great way to relax after a long week... or weekend...

Break out your favorite airliner, new or old, zip up or down the country, and enjoy New Zealand's main trunk route.

Whatever you choose to fly, our fantastic team of controllers will staff up their favourite ATC positions and provide excellent Kiwi service around the country.
