In concert with the New Zealand update we have changed the New Zealand regional tours within the Virtual Airline into Events throughout the remainder of February, and throughout March.

As is normal when we run events:
The legs can be flown in any order

If you are in a position to help fund the internet machinery that makes VirtualFlight.Online possible, everybody in the community will be appreciative. As you may have noticed, we hit a speed-bump with Google Maps this week - who knew that 400 people requesting maps repeatedly would increase costs by an order of magnitude!?
Seriously though - if you can help, that would be great. We have a patreon account:
