Queenstown

Queenstown, FSX

Queenstown is a town in the southwestern New Zealand. The city airport, Queenstown Airport (NZQN) Map Photo, is spetacular due to its mountainous surroundings. The main runway is 6200 ft long.

Approaches

Queenstown has several approaches, all circle-to-land:

The alpha and bravo approaches are for east arrivals (rwy 23) and charlie for west arrivals (rwy 5). Remark that the airport has a special eight pattern for larger aircraft circlings.

Scenery

The free NZQN Queenstown Intl Airport and corresponding Queenstown NZ photoreal update by Peter Lohr and Robin Corn add a very detailed scenery to the airport and surrounding area. It is also strongly recommended to add a more detailed mesh, e.g., the free 75m mesh from GeographX.

Flights

The airport has several dometic flights and flights to Australia, mainly served by Air New Zealand and Quantas, and Boeing 737 being the largest serving jet. For Australian departures start at Sydney (YSSY) or Brisbane (YBBN) (2-3 hours). For domestic flights, for example make a longer flight from Auckland (NZAA) or a short flight from Christchurch (NZCH). Try a non-visual, difficult weather approach in e.g. the Boeing 737 for a highly challinging approach.

Comments:

Good fun doing this in a 747, and some nice FS scenery along the way.
In fact, I have seen Air NZ 767s using Queenstown within the last 2 years, but it is very hairy
Visit www.nzff.co.nr (The New Zealand flightsim forums) for much more fun flights in NZ, plus custom kiwi scenery and aircraft
nice view while landing
There is no U in Qantas, it's an anacronym - Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services
Actually, QANTAS it is not an anacronym, it is an acronym. Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Service.
HOW DOES ONE INPUT THE GPS WAYPOINTS INTO THE GPS FOR APPROACH INTO NZQN. REGARDS BRIAN.
