Cross The Ditch 16 Event Appreciation

#1 Post by Aharon Dayan » Mon Jun 17, 2019 2:06 am

Shalom and greetings all,

Thanks to all New Zealand controllers for great non stop 24 hour event!!! I flew TWO flights in that event.

I never knew that runway 23 landing for NZQN Queenstown would be allowed in Vatsim and in real life!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

I had extremely hair raising approach to NZQN runway 23 through surrounding mountains but managed to land successfully!!

Regards,

Aharon

Glad that you enjoyed yourself Aharon. It certainly was interesting controlling you with FSX default navigation.

And as a matter of interested, RWY23 at NZQN is actually the preferred runway and the one used most often.

Do you mean my FSX default ground terrians or do you mean my FSX default GPS?? :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Good thing there were VATNZ controllers on duty to do vectoring for my plane for runway 23 because FSX default GPS's pink line for the runway did NOT match freeware FSX compatible NZQN scenery add on!! Good thing the controllers were providing proper heading orders to the point I found the famous river that would lead me to runway 23!!

Good thing there were VATNZ controllers and you on duty to do vectoring for my plane for runway 23 because FSX default GPS's pink line for the runway did NOT match freeware FSX compatible NZQN scenery add on!!
