Christchurch International Airport is the second largest airport in New Zealand and is fully equipped to international standards.
The airport has two perpendicular runways: primary runway (02/20) oriented with the north-easterly and south-westerly prevailing winds, and a secondary runway (11/29) oriented for use during nor’westers. The airport also has a third grass runway, parallel to the primary runway, for use by general aviation.
Students have a unique opportunity to be exposed to a busy controlled aviation environment. The experience gained flying at Christchurch Airport gives IAANZ trained pilots the experience and confidence to fly into any certified airport in New Zealand.
