The New Southern Sky Conference 2018 hailed a resounding success!

The second NSS Conference held from 15-16 May 2018 at the BECA Auckland offices is done! Opened by the Minister of Transport and a surprise video by Christchurch Helicopters pilot Richie McCaw, this fantastic event drew a wide range of domestic and international delegates. Focused on 'Helping you transition' to ADS-B and PBN, the conference saw  22 presentations, two workshops (ADS-B and PBN) and three panels (Transition, International and Technology) delivered. 

Keep an eye out for the presentation on this site, they'll be loaded very soon. And don't forget to keep an eye out for the next NSS Conference scheduled for 2020.
