Night Shift Presents: Christchurch Control!

Kia Ora All

For this week's Night Shift, the skies really are the limit!

Our activity will be spread out all over the NZZC - the entire mainland New Zealand airspace. Controllers can take their pick of any positions they're rated to staff. Pilots can choose any flight or flights they want to take. Any aircraft type from any location!

The goal is to cover as much of the country as possible with ATC service, and the challenge is then to our pilots to keep the controllers busy all evening. 

See you all on Sunday night!
