Non Normal Night Shift Presents: Explore Northland!

Hello Everyone

This month we are heading up north to Northland to explore some of the best parts of the country for VFR flying like Whangarei, Kaitaia, and Kerikeri to name a few locations you could fly.

The area is well known for it's historical ties to the Treaty of Waitangi and early European settlements. It also holds the famous Ninety Mile Beach.

This is also the second Night Shift event to be rostered. As most, if not all airports North of Auckland are un-attened, just the Auckland control areas will be rostered for this event but that doesn't mean you shouldn't apply for ATC.

 You can still expect to get ATC coverage throughout the whole NZZC but it'll be great to see how many aircraft we can get up North.

See you all on Sunday night!
