ANN's Daily Aero-Linx (01.01.22)

Aero Linx: Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand The Civil Aviation Authority is a Crown entity responsible to the Minister of Transport. Civil aviation in New Zealand operates within a system established and maintained by the Civil Aviation Act 1990. We're governed by the Authority – a five member board appointed by the minister to represent the public interest in civil aviation. The Authority appoints our chief executive, who’s also the Director of Civil Aviation. As well as the functions and powers delegated by the Authority, the Director has powers conferred by the Act, which are performed independently of both the Minister of Transport and the Authority.

ANN's Daily Aero-Term (01.01.22): Minimum Vectoring Altitude (MVA)

Minimum Vectoring Altitude (MVA) The lowest MSL altitude at which an IFR aircraft will be vectored by a radar controller, except as otherwise authorized for radar approaches, departures, and missed approaches. The altitude meets IFR obstacle clearance criteria. It may be lower than the published MEA along an airway or J-route segment. It may be utilized for radar vectoring only upon the controller’s determination that an adequate radar return is being received from the aircraft being controlled. Charts depicting minimum vectoring altitudes are normally available only to the controllers and not to pilots.
