Windy Wellington

It might seem simple enough, but New Zealand's Capital, Wellington, isn't known as the windy city for nothing. 

Depart from either Auckland (NZAA) or Christchurch (NZCH) and aim to land in Wellington (NZWN)
around 0800UTC.

According to the New Zealand MetService, Wellington has, on average, 172 days a year where the wind gust greater than 32kts and 61 days a year where the wind gusts greater than 50kts!To complicate matters slightly, the Runway is only 1814m (5951ft) long and is bounded by the Cook Strait to the south and Wellington Harbour to the north. There isn't really a lot of room for error.
