Thanks Gasman. About the time you posted this I was asking on the New Zealand thread if anyone had info on this.

As I just posted in the NZ aviation thread; the Air New Zealand Airbus A320 involved was ZK-OJN. The flight was NZ938 from OOL. No information on AvHerald yet.

What is a Boeing 717 if not a DC9MAX?

I'm actually surprised this sort of thing doesn't happen more often around AKL. The boundaries between controlled and uncontrolled airspce rely on VFR pilots being able to identify surface landmarks in places that aren't intuitively obvious, and relate them to maximum allowed altitudes, above which you punch through into AKL approach's domain.

As a private pilot myself I still find it more complicated than it needs to be ("okay I've passed that hill so can go up to 3000', but does that NOTAM apply to here.....?"). In fact I once caused a Malaysian 772 to take corrective (I like the term better than "evasive") action. I was close to the maximum allowed altitude, but my transponder was faulty and broadcasting my altitude as almost 1000' higher than I actually was. AKL approach therefore thought I had violated their airspace and moved the Malaysian aircraft out of the way.

This happens all the time in the US. We have to swerve every now and then. The system works and this isnt news
