New Southern Sky Roadshow concludes to a packed audience in Wellington


The New Southern Sky (NSS) team delivered its final presentation to a packed audience in Wellington yesterday afternoon as part of the nationwide roadshow that began in mid-September.

The session at CAA National Office brought together over 50 attendees who represented flight training organisations, recreational flyers, regular public transport (RPT) operators, aviation engineering companies, the NZDF, Treasury and MBIE.

Speakers, including Programme Director Steve Smyth, Airways Air Navigation Services Specialist Wayne Blythe, and CAA’s Training Standards Development Officer David Harrison provided the audience with a comprehensive update on the programme including the National Ground Based Navigation Aid Strategy, Performance Based Navigation (PBN) Plan and the Future Surveillance Project.

In total, the roadshow has attracted 300 plus attendees, and has helped ensure that the aviation sector is aware and engaged in the progress and benefits of this 10 year programme.
