VOR/DME Arrival Night

This week is an opportunity to practice a VOR/DME arrival, into either New Plymouth or Gisborne airports.

The intention is to fly directly over the arrival airports VOR (ie NP or GS), then follow the instructions as explained in the arrival/approach section.

Essentially you cross the VOR at 3,000 feet, turn onto the outbound radial heading, then at 8 or 10 DME, turn in and land, you should reference the VOR DME arrival chart for full instructions.

It's not really that complicated!


To have your flight booking appear on the VATNZ Homepage to let others know you plan to fly, remember to book your flight in Vroute.
