Gliding New Zealand Airspace Usage Tracker

Welcome to the Gliding New Zealand airspace usage tracking system.

Click "Add Report" above to add an airspace request report.

This website is designed to help Gliding New Zealand keep track of airspace usage by glider pilots throughout the country. It can be used to report any airspace usage, both positive and negative. Your effort to use this system will help GNZ negotiate airspace in the future. As the saying goes, use it or lose it, and with this system we can show how much we use it.

Recent Updates

  • 12th October - Added "number of aircraft" field. As an example, if you open up airspace by phone for your club, you can specify 10 gliders used the airspace. You no longer need to add a separate report for each glider.
