It’s time to head back to New Zealand with our favorite IRL ATR pilot @zkdos! Enjoy this guided tour around the beautiful Marlborough Sounds at the top of New Zealand’s South Island, that visits two fantastic addon airports for MSFS. Set your departure time to sunrise, and add a high level of cloud for best results! More information: https://worldtour.flights/flightplans/324
