Te Anau / Manapouri (NZMO)
In April 2009, the nearby Te Anau Aerodrome (NZTZ) ceased real-world operations, and all flight activities in the region were consolidated at this aerodrome. As a result the field was renamed from Manapouri to Te Anau / Manapouri Aerodrome.
Manapouri, located on the edge of the Fiordland National Park was originally constructed to serve linkage of communities when the construction of New Zealands largest hydro power plant was created on Lake Manapouri's West Arm. Recently construction on the aerodrome as begun with the installation of a second runway in anticipation of Queenstown being restricted with its Queenstown-Milford flights. Pioneer Air occassionally fly a Conviar from Wellington to Manapouri on charter for an International travel company. The NDB at Manapouri also serves as a challenging instrument approach and is a favourite for training.
Queenstown Tower (118.100) or Invercargill Tower (118.500) provide a Flight Information Service to Manapouri. NZCH-S_CTR also provides this service when either tower are off watch and if traffic levels permit.
