Kaikoura Relief Effort

In the wake of the earthquake that isolated Kaikoura we will be assisting with the relief effort. The plan is fly from either Wellington or Christchurch to Kaikoura airfield, try to do as many legs as possible and rescue as many people as possible. You may like to fly a helicopter or light aircraft. 

Kaikoura (NZKI) has a very small uncontrolled airfield with a runway length of 700m, remember you will need to set your simulator to day time as this airfield has no runway lights! There is also no instrument approaches, so prepare to do a visual approach. 

Routes:

NZWN - NZKI - NZWN

NZCH - NZKI - NZCH
