    It's June and with the easing of travel restrictions, people all across Australasia are dreaming of escaping the cold with trips to the Islands. Facilitating these holidays are the pilots and controllers of VATSIM, connecting Melbourne, Auckland, and Fiji as we once again Cross the Ditch! What's it all about? For twenty hours this June, the skies over the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand will be filled with aircraft all on a mission to Cross the Ditch. An example of that typical down-under understatement, this "ditch" is over 1100nm wide. The flight routes all range from two and a half to three and a half hours flight time. Throughout the event, Oceania's two divisions – VATNZ and VATPAC – will be providing full gate-to-gate ATC coverage, in the Southern Hemisphere's premiere oceanic event. This is a great opportunity to experience Oceanic flying without the need to commit to an eight-hour flight! If you're new to Oceanic Flying, our reporting tool makes taking part a breeze.

Each flight should take roughly two and a half to three and a half hours to complete, allowing pilots time to easily complete multiple sectors. The following is the active ATC available during this event. The Arrival and Departure Slots available on the Flight Booking page will ensure that there is ATC coverage throughout your flight.
