PBN Approaches on Runway 02

Primarily used in easterly/north-easterly conditions

Auckland and Australian traffic will track outside West Melton township to line up for the final approach at three nautical miles from the runway.

Wellington traffic will track over the city at no less than 4,000ft, south of Prebbleton, and west of Templeton to line up at four nautical miles from the runway.

In designing these approaches, the trial partners have taken care to avoid the built-up areas of Prebbleton, Templeton and West Melton, reducing noise for these communities.

The figure below shows the trial flight paths described above laid over a map.
