Re: LAHSO in NZCH

Hi Zain, LAHSO operations can be nominated by the PIC. They do have choice weather they participate in LAHSO operations. I think it is also good to point out that only ANZ A320 aircraft are permitted to participate in LASHO operations and from my knowledge are the only pilots in NZ to be trained to ...

Re: Oceanic Question

Duncan, When you log on as a OCA controller you have the choice of setting up 122.1 . If you choose to do this please note that it will be a text-only frequency and to reply on that frequency you'll have to turn off your text on 128.9 or whatever primary frequency you're on. If you don't use the sec...

Re: AIP departures vs FSC sids

That might not always be the case David for the simple reason that if an enroute controller is on 99% of the time we prefer not to provide aircraft with vectors for there entire flight plan. If that departure isn't on your program then just fly the departure that ATC gives you or request a visual de...

Re: WNO EVENT - Palmerston North Top Cover

SNO [a regular EVENT] was changed from Sunday to Saturday because a few schoolboys had to go to bed early, now they're growing up it's time to move it back!

Re: Changes To Wednesday Night Ops

Hi David, Although I do agree with your statement with Duncan, we log off at 9pm because of the lack of pilot support. For example, we fully staffed up for the Rarotonga event the other Saturday EVERY position on the event page roster was filled for at least 2 hours!! And as ATC, we were greeted wit...
