This time we try an Open Skies event on a Sunday, so the skies really are the limit: our activity is concentrated on 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.
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.
Find the Standard Route Clearances for your departure airport here.
Flight and ATC Bookings
We encourage pilots and controllers alike to book your intention to fly or provide ATC using vroute.
These bookings display on the VATNZ website and allow others to know when and where to expect pilots and controllers to be online.
