New Zealand Tour

New Zealand Tour

This VFR tour allows you to explore the wonderful countryside of New Zealand. NZ has a huge variety of terrain and weather providing the pilot with great delights but also some dangers when the wind and rain are against you! During this tour you will visit the length and breadth of North and South Islands starting at the modern city of Auckland and visiting the sulphurous mudpools of Rotorua, the infamous approach to Queenstown airport, the fiords around Milford Sound, the art deco paradise of Napier and the mountains that appeared so strikingly in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films. Make sure you download some of the many freeware addon sceneries and terrain available for NZ and these will really enhance the realism of your flights.
