Oceania | Region Tracking Topic

Oceania Region

This IFATC region represents Australia, New Zealand, and all Pacific islands! Try the breathtaking approach into Queenstown, escape to paradise in Fiji, or try a popular favorite like Melbourne to Sydney.

Check the topic comments below to see what frequencies are being staffed by ATC in this region, important airport information, and more!


Do you want IFATC to staff your event? Publish your event in the Events category, ensure you use the correct region tag for your event’s location, and a member assigned to the ATC region will express their team’s intent to provide services for your event.



What are ATC region assignments?

The Infinite Flight ATC (IFATC) team operates globally on the Expert Server using a region assignment program. This program allows all IFATC members to select a region, regardless of physical location, where they may control any airport/frequency for which their rank qualifies. Members will remain in their assigned region for 30 days before being eligible to transfer. Extended assignments allow for more ATC proficiency and familiarity in the assigned region!

How can I join IFATC?

Head to our ATC Recruiting Topic, read all instructions, ensure you meet the requirements, then submit an application to begin!

How does a "Region Tracking Topic" work?

Each assignable region of IFATC has it’s own tracking topic for improved ATC/pilot engagement which offers controllers an additional location to indicate which airports they’re opening in real-time. Controllers may advise when opening and closing by commenting on this topic. Pilots should avoid commenting with excessive ATC requests.

How can I see the current IFATC region staffing?

The number of controllers assigned to each region can be found by visiting if-atc.com/stats. Looking for more ATC in a particular region? Join the effort and become part of the staffing you want to see!

Do I need Staff/Moderator permission to receive IFATC staffing at my event?

No, members of the assigned region are encouraged to comment directly on the published Events to express their team’s intent to provide ATC services! Event creators should avoid contacting individual controllers privately for service, instead publishing the event publicly.

How can I improve the likelihood of ATC staffing my event?

When creating an event with ATC in mind ensure the following:

  • The featured airports have ATC frequencies
  • The featured airports has ample parking and ramp space
  • The featured theme would be complimented by ATC (airshows and landing competitions are often best without ATC on the Casual Server)
  • The event offers a variety of airports in reasonable proximity to allow for a smooth flow of Air Traffic
  • Event instructions are clear, concise, and not overly restrictive
How can I appeal my Level 2 or 3 Violation?

If reported by ATC on the Expert Server for an infraction you will be issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Violation. This may be appealed here on the Community Forum by sending a direct message to @appeals where you should provide your callsign, display name, location, details surrounding the report, and a replay file which can easily be uploaded here!

Will be taking of from Chistchurch at 09:40Zulu bound for Auckland

I had A question,can I use ANZ B77W on NZCH-NZAA?

Yes, for sure you can… Its not a regular scheduled route, but ANZ will often need to move the B777 between the airports.

I remember when they used to run a late night flight from NZCH to NZAA with the 767, they called it the Red Eye Special, and it was at a discount, because they needed the plane in Auckland for the next mornings outbound to Australia.

If u would like! Im currently controlling NZAA.

Hello there,we are currently doing A group flight between OMAA-YSSY and will be landing in an hour,if any of you controllers could provide us with us ATC that would be great ,Thanks! 🙂

Hi there @Mayank_Pawar I’ll open up Sydney for you
