Christchurch Control

Hello Everyone!

This week is our first trial of the new event format. For this, movements will be focused between Wellington and Christchurch. This does not mean you have to fly between the two, but we're hoping you'll enjoy the higher traffic at these airports and show some love to our other airports.

Controllers can choose any positions they're rated to staff, with a preference for Wellington or Christchurch positions. 

The goal is to get as much movement between the two airports as possible in the event. Remember to keep those controllers busy.

The event is not rostered, so it will be a first come, first serve system in ⁠atc-requests ⁠⁠

Details to come soon

See you all on Sunday night!
