New Air Space operations in and above the Omarama

Hey Guys,

We've spoken to Captain Mark Sutherland for clarification on all this and it looks
like we'll have Mt Cook ATR's flying through the Omarama area where
HGs fly.

Fortunately most of the flights will be above our usual
altitudes and the flights are few.

Still these guys are operating on IFR and descending through the
levels we fly at so we need to do everything we can to avoid a midair.

Bill Degen has taken the conversations so if you have any further info or would like to ask any questions please direct these to him for now.
