Though that reminds me, gotta get a CV580 flight in before they're gone.

Not sure if Air Chathams is getting rid of them that quickly.... Just flew one AKL-WHK-AKL yesterday actually. Wanted to log the Metroliner (have to fly it again) but settled with the consolation CV-580. At least it was a new rego CV-580..
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Cool thanks. Guess with the mining slowdown they have excess capacity in Oz right now.

Good to see another type in our skies.

The F70/F100 of Alliance has made an appearance, on this side of the Tasman recently as well.

It's Alliance themselves. In the main it's used to operate air cruising type trips for Tauck tours, it replaced the Air Chatham's CV580 that was previously used for this work.

Yes, it's good to see something a little different.

Currently there are only a limited number in use in New Zealand, both runways in NZQN (naturally), 05R at NZAA, 29 at NZCH, and NZRO both runways.

Runway 11 at NZCH also has an RNP AR approach.

I'm curious whether anyone know what Airways has planned in terms of additional RNP approaches.

Currently there are only a limited number in use in New Zealand, both runways in NZQN (naturally), 05R at NZAA, 29 at NZCH, and NZRO both runways.
All of these would need to be adapted for ATRs, and I can't see NZ investing that kind of money unless there was some indication of additional RNP approaches being developed.

As I understand RNP, it is desirable at NZQN , Aotearoa has referred to one developed by NZ and the regulator for OEI out of WLG towards Haywards. That makes sense.But why NZRO and NZCH ? At this time is RNP into NZQN confined to the A320?
