A320 landing at Queenstown (Speed x 3)


Windy Wellington!

NOTE TO PILOTS LANDING AT QUEENSTOWN
  • eg If assigned the RNAV (GNSS) G and you want to do the RNAV (RNP) Y just advise the controller.
  • Be familiar with your escape route ie missed approach procedure.
  • Make sure you fully understand the approach ie waypoints, heights, speeds, visual circuits if applicable, holding pattern.
  • Do not fly a plane larger than an A320.
  • Practice the approach when nobody is about.
NOTE TO PILOTS - DEPARTURES
  • If you don't have the SID on your FMC please tell the controller.
  • If you are not RNAV capable please advise the controller.
  • The controller will assign you a suitable departure. :)
Also, don't forget to set your sim for DAY TIME as there are no night operations into Queenstown.

Mission

A great initiative Duncan and lots of really valuable information in the post. Not sure how often I will be able to join in given my crazy work hours but fingers crossed I will be there one day!

Hi Duncan,

You are correct, currently aircraft can only operate from Queenstown Airport during
daylight hours.

This time of the year daylight runs from approx. 5:40am to 10:10pm but in winter this
reduces to approx. 7:50am to 5:45pm.

Cheers, Chris

Thanks all again, dinner was a bit late so thanks for waiting for me NZWN_TWR :)

My airbus wasn't playing ball and I couldn't get the autothrottle to work so I busted through the 210kt limit and 10,000 foot restriction unfortunately. And it's not like you can manually adjust the power levels manually much. Oh well I'll have to do some more testing.

See you on Sunday hopefully.
