    no ammo AT ALL on nhtional flights

    Just an update from Dunedin Airport. Flights all delayed by fog, obviously instrument flying is an arcane skill.

    Anyway, snapped a photo of the security notice.

    No ammo in your checked baggage, goes in your carry on. Same with lithium batteries for power tools, fine in the cabin.

    Hold up so MSL are you saying we now take ammo as carry on vs. checked? That wasn't the case when I called them about flying to Toby shoot a few weeks back.

    The batteries in the cabin is so they can attempt to extinguish them if they catch fire.

    If you fly with a checked firearm you are allowed 5kg of ammunition.

    Ammo and firearms must be in separate cases. Ammo in "original packaging" - ammo boxes always been fine for me. Firearm disabled - bolt removed, trigger lock etc.

    Flew to CHC last weekend, no hassles. The sign for "no ammo" applies to people traveling without a checked firearm...

    If you intend to fly with a firearm, call the airline ahead of time and get them to put a note on your booking. Arrive early, and go to the oversize baggage checkin or to premium checkin counter.

    At the destination, it helps if there are 2 people, we split up, one goes to baggage services and the other checks the conveyor. I've lost count of how many times cases containing firearms have come out on the general belt, especially at Welly airport...

    There are still minimum VFR requirements for instrument flight.
    Especially during taxi, takeoff and landings.
    Fog is always a hassle.

    Just checked in person with Air NZ who went through the rules carefully and they then also spoke to Dunners airport. The rules have not changed regarding check in baggage and the best response they had to that banner is it should imply that you cannot have undeclared ammunition in your bag

    Nor me Gibo.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
