Palmerston North Night Ops

Fly between Palmerston North and the two largest airports in New Zealand's airspace. There should be time to complete one or two legs, between Palmerston North (NZPM) and either Auckland (NZAA) or Christchurch (NZCH).

Palmerston North is one of the largest regional airports in the New Zealand and provides a scenic and exciting arrival onto runway 25 thanks to the Tararua ranges to the east of the field.

The Christchurch route passes east and west of Wellington and features spectacular scenery and busy airspace crossing Cook Strait and skirting the South Island's stunning north-eastern coast.

The Auckland route takes in the breath-taking views of the Tongariro National Park and Lake Taupo.

Select your favourite major airport and fly into Palmerston North.
