Welcome to the New Zealand Challenge 2013!

Challenger Club proudly presents 6th edition of traditional
New Year's event that creates smiles on pilots faces since 2006!


After last years very successful Trans-African Challenge 2012 where pilots from all
over the world registered in total over 480 flights on VATSIM network with their GA
airplanes, flown 74.000 Nm and logged over 32.000 minutes, we this year invite
you to discover beautiful New Zealand!


Here is what we plan to do. As tradition dictates, New Zealand Challenge 2013 will officially start as
soon as the first seconds of upcoming new year will strike. So, after you wake up in the new morning,
take a sip of coffee and slowly join us with your favorite GA airplane, we start on 01.01.2013 at
NZNV(Invercargill airport) and finish our journey at the tip of the New Zealand's North Island on
10.01.2013. All of you who wish to join us at a later time, you can do that by the end of 5th of
January 2013
, giving you enough time to finish all stages with ease.

But before all that, please do visit our webpage where all additional information along with innovative
PIREP system introduction and many other downloadable content can be obtained as main characteristics
of Challenger events are superb support (maps, charts, ATC, assistance during the event), use of real
weather, limited use of autopilot, gentlemen agreement to report crashes/flight incidents and exclusive
use of conventional navigation. All that is packed in exciting 10 days that will for sure make you want to
join us again!

On behalf of Challenger Club Organization Board we wish you a cordial welcome
to the New Zealand Challenge 2013 and many happy landings!

Dear ATC staff,

Challenger Club Organization board came to a conclusion that official,
bonus leg of the programe will take place on 12th of January 2013,
departing NZAA at around 00:00 zulu with estimated arrival to YSSY
at around 03:30 zulu.

Any help providing ATC assistance would be much appreciated. ATC can expect at least
15 crews heading for Sydney, perhaps more.

All the best,
Jay Erjavec

Jay

Just logging onto NZCH-R now for you, if I've got the date correctly!

I wish I could do Oceanic for you but I have some errands to run.

And I guess I was 24 hours early as 90 mins and no aircraft. No promises, but will try again tomorrow.

As luck would have it, I have some free time this morning (my time) and am online again for the group.
