Since we have all these fine NZ airport sceneries available, it's time to populate them with something better than Emerald Harbour Air Cessnas.
Jenks has put the pressure on by repainting HTAI Cessnas, soon to be followed by the Pipers. I'm going to start off using these and see how far we get.
First stage of the project is to
1. Assign aircraft to a home base
2. Figure out where the NZ airports are

I've chopped NZ up into 6 GA zones, and the traffic will fly with a weighting to their home zone.

So you won't find a Z1 aircraft very often down in Invercargill (although this could be arranged by special request!). Also, GA aircraft will congregate away from the heavies like NZAA, so hopefully they'll show up where they're wanted rather than be a nuisance to the heavy iron.

Couple of omissions

Pikes Point is no longer operational.

Missing from your list

Raetihi Airstrip (private) but used by Wanganui Aeroworks, has a hanger and couple of support building for crop dusting operations.

Chateau Airport, Tongariro NP - Home of Mountain Air (hint for someone to design this for FS)

Neither of these have been included by Micro$ but both are well used fields unlike NZRU which sees very little traffic if any these days.

And for a complete list try this

gives a list of all coordinates.
