New Zealand Air Force Bases With Long Runways

Postby Aharon » Tue May 01, 2018 3:45 am

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Where can I find on Internet a nice list of New Zealand air force bases with long runways that I can fly to using FSX, please (as long as the bases exist on FSX or freeware sceneries offered for FSX use)?

Runway distance has to be at least 7,000 ft long, please.

Thanks,

Aharon

Well I am having hard time there are only THREE air force bases in New Zealand. I mean where does New Zealand air force park their massive C130s and 757s?

There's only 2 757's and 6(?) C-130's so space isn't an issue

There's also NZRU Waiouru which is an army base airfield with a sealed runway although it wouldn't be as long as WP or OH, however I'm not sure it's even active anymore as it isn't in the AIP anymore.

Thanks all for answers.

Very strange!!! When New Zealand air force has 757s, C-130s, and P-3s, I thought they would have about 10 air force bases or so across New Zealand.

RNZAF aircraft also fly in and out of Woodbourne including the 757 occasionally. RNZAF also has terminals for passenger and freight at Wellington and Christchurch.

There would be no practical purpose having 10 Bases in a country our size!
