07NOV20 / 1800Z - Twisting and Turning into Queenstown - @NZAA

★彡[Qᴜᴇᴇɴꜱᴛᴏᴡɴ, ɴᴇᴡ ᴢᴇᴀʟᴀɴᴅ]彡★

Welcome to this event! Today, we will be exploring one of the least popular ranges of the world, New Zealand. We will be flying from Auckland to Queenstown using a combination of JetStar and Air New Zealand A320-200s.

Auckland and Queenstown are both beautiful airports with scenic approaches, but Queenstown is widely known for it’s difficult aproach. Having two airliner-capable runways that both have spectacular approaches, Queenstown is quite the diamond in the rough. Runway 23 has a banking, twisting approach all the way down to the airport, that guides through the valley and takes advantage of the rough terrain. Runway 05 has a slight turn on final to align with the runway, while navigating over the beautiful lake below.

What is the lake west of Queenstown Airport named?
  • Lake Queenstown
  • Lake Wakatipu
  • Lake Wanaka
  • Lake Pukaki
