Saturday Night Ops
VOR / DME challenge
Saturday 12th October 2019 1900-2300 NZDT / 1700-2100 AEDT / 0600-1000 UTC


This week is an opportunity to practice a VOR/DME arrival, into either New Plymouth or Gisborne airports.

The intention is to fly directly over the arrival airports VOR (ie NP or GS), then follow the instructions as explained in the arrival/approach section.

Essentially you cross the VOR at 3,000 feet, turn onto the outbound radial heading, then at 8 or 10 DME, turn in and land, you should reference the VOR DME arrival chart for full instructions.

It's not really that complicated!

Flight and ATC Bookings
We encourage pilots and controllers alike to book your intention to fly or provide ATC using vroute.
