Night Shift
Non-Normal Night Shift - Paraparaumu
Sunday 30th May 2021 1900-2200 NZST / 1700-2000 AEST / 0700-1000 UTC


Welcome to our second Non-Normal Night shift!

Non-Normal Night Shift is our way of changing up your Sunday evenings once a month.

It might be a simple change in route, or it might be something completly out of left field.

For this months Non-Normal, to celebrate the new Paraparaumu Flight Service position, we are changing up the route.

Our routing tonight is going to be Auckland <-> Paraparaumu.

Make sure to read up on the new Paraparaumu Procedures here: https://www.vatnz.net/controllers/stand ... raumu-fss/

This is useful to pilots as well as controllers as it outlines the radio procedures used at Paraparaumu when Flight service is on watch.





ATC will be rostered on by the Events Director for this event.

To apply please use the applications tab above. Applications will close at the end of the Thursday before the event.

Due to the very different nature of Paraparaumu Flight Service, the position will be staffed by a local pilot who already knows the procedures for the first event.

Any listed positions not filled by rostered ATC will become free for all after the roster is published
