Hey you! Yeah, you … You’re invited to one of the first IFATC Region events! This one, taking place in the land of The Hobbit and The Land Downunder , we invite you to join us in flying and recreating a very popular, and heavily inspired, VATSIM event: “Cross the Ditch.”

Fly to and fro 4 staffed, mostly , 3D airports - Sydney, Queenstown, Auckland and Melbourne in any aircraft of your choosing! From the serenity of Sydney to the challenges of Queenstown we encourage you to come along and take part.

What are you waiting for?

What do you mean by this?

Do I have to Register?

Are we aloud to fly NZAA-NZQN? Which is flown by Air New Zealand A320

Nothing is stopping you, however the point of this event is across the Tasman. Meaning you fly over the Tasman.

Roger, I will be doing that. I’m going to fly a 777-300 all blacks livery NZAA-YSSY at 0600 Zulu if anyone wants to join?

For this particular event we’re encouraging flying across the Tasman (Australia to New Zealand or visa versa), but there’s nothing stopping you flying locally too if we are open!

Hopefully we’ll have more local events soon that are much more localised around two close airports.

Apologies guys, some of our Aussie counterparts have been held up opening up Sydney and Melbourne, but certainly should be at some stage soon! Queenstown and Auckland are open and running :)
