03SEP21 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: Upside Down Islands @ YSSY


Upside, inside out, living the Aussie locaaaa. Welcome to a fan favorite Friday Night Flight as we head to Australia, New Zealand, and surrounding island nations to make for an adventurous event! This week will focus on connecting all the island airports in the area with Sydney, the largest and biggest airport flown to by many of these airports.

These secondary airports include direct destinations to airports in New Zealand, as well as flights to Nadi, Suba, and Noumea. Flights to Tasmania are also included in this week’s event airports. Several of these routes have multiple operators, so hop in any aircraft you want and let’s fill the skies down under!

IFATC will open these airports from 0600Z on Friday to 0600Z on Saturday, and you can use any of our established routes during the event!


Fiji, host to 2 of this week's event airports, consists of how many islands?

  • 45
  • Over 330
  • Between 120 and 140

I am gonna do NZAA - OTHH for this one

So I can’t do like NZQN - NZAA

NZQN-NZAA is perfectly fine. By nearby airports, it’s more in the range of 50 miles or less from the hub airport.
