A long days work

Today New Zealand and the surrounding Islands & The Pacific had ATC. So I took advantage of that to get some flying in. Relying on my most flown route I chose Auckland to Napier and then the Return flight. After some misjudgments and miscommunication on Approach to Auckland I finally got in after flying for 1hr:55mns. (Also @QantasAviator was there)

It was a great first proper ATC flight in a little while, really helped create the illusion that I can go outside, when I cant. Till the next time, goodbye!
