Management and staff of VATNZ have been working hard to prepare for the official opening of VATNZ on January 1st 2007 at 00:01 UTC


The opening will be celebrated by a flyin focussing on Auckland, NZAA and all ATC positions will be staffed during the opening flyin celebrations.


VATPAC will be supporting the VATNZ event by providing traffic across the TASMAN to Auckland from Australia so this promises to be a very busy day in the OCEANIA region.


Drop in to www.vatnz.net to get details of the event and perhaps plan a local flight to enjoy the magnificent scenery and great ATC of VATNZ.
