  • Lots of ramp clutter and detail
  • Several custom-made items (Novotel, Tower and Antarctic hangar, A320’s in maintenance)

  • Airport flatten added
  • Aeroclub tidy-up, new runway, taxiways, lots of scenery items added

Using a Pilot's Life Chapter 2 and flying A320 in NZ for ANZ. This airport is a must-have, thanks mate!

Really excellent, much appreciated. I'm using it woth SU10 beta and works well.

Does this work with SU9?

Hello,

Thank you for this new version 😊

Does it work if we don't have the Orbx mesh?

Any progress with the update? Aeroclub needs some luv 😊

Do we have an update coming as reported by the CTD's in the comments?

Hello

Thank you for your work, because I know this is a lot of work for you

Thanks to you I have the Christchurch airport, one more.

I live in Canada but I am a New Zealand fan and I use the TBM-930 with the livery of Sounds Air company witch is based at Picton Airport (Marlborough) and they fly between a few cities.

I found several on flightsim but the following ones are missing if I'm not mistaken

Picton airport, Blenheim Airport, Taupo Airport, Wanaka Airport

I was wondering if it would be possible for you to do one or two airfields that they use ?

That would allow me to make connections between several airports used by the company Sounds Air

Thank you in advance

Great work, very thankful for your efforts here. Are the custom Aero Club buildings still on the agenda?

Edit: Also getting CTDs here now, had to uninstall it unfortunately. Not sure if it's because I'm using ORBX NZ Mesh or weather its just incompatiple with a Sim Update...

I seem to be getting consistent CTD at this airport since the last couple of updates. Maybe something changed? Thanks.

Great scenery so I would like to be able to use it again.

Amazing work, thanks for that 😊

Hey I love my home airport recreation, nice job, is it possible to unflatten the runways though? I like the dynamics of lumps and slopes in runways, anyway request NZGM (greymouth)... have a wonderful day!

Great representation of my home airport, thanks!
Very detailed and accurate airport, i enjoyed it a lot 😊 I landed the A320 without ILS and navigation instruments failure with todays 3 visibility and... what a mess!! and the worst, the ATC order to land at 29, the shortest runway! -.- well, we survive at least xD thanks a lot for this magnificient airport, cheers

Cheers mate, this is brilliant.
Thanks so much for this love it. The only thing that I see when I start at a gate there are baggage carts everywhere, and the default baggage carts are sitting on top of the added carts.
