Non-Normal Night Shift: Bay of Plenty

Join us in flying into the Bay of Plenty and exploring some of New Zealand's lesser-used airfields.

Non-Normal Night Shift is our way of changing your weekly Saturday event by visiting somewhere different, or changing the usual rotation.

With full ATC along the way, it's a great way to relax on your Saturday evening.

Pick up your favorite aircraft, fly into Tauranga or Rotorua, or conduct uncontrolled operations at Whakatane, Taupo, or Tokoroa.


ATC will NOT be rostered on for this Event.

Please Refer to - VATNZ ATC Policy
