Queenstown Winter Festival

On the 22nd June, Queenstown Winterfestival 2012 begins. An estimated 60,000 people will descend on Queenstown for the event, and all these overseas and domestic visitors need to get there in time for the event.

Fly your aircraft from one of the other main centres into Queenstown to pick up your share of the inbound passengers and return them to your home base.

Sector lengths will vary depending on aircraft choice and the other centre you're flying from. Real-world Queenstown is served by B737/A320 and smaller; given the challenging RNAV/VORDME approach, it is recommended that you fly in an aircraft that you're comfortable with.

Events based around the mountainous Queenstown airspace are always popular and always a challenge for pilots and controllers alike and this event will be no exception.
