Remote strip training at Martins Bay, South Island New Zealand. The strip is located 51nm from Queenstown on the west coast. Martin's Bay is inaccessible by road, and most aviation traffic is for transporting hunters/fisherman/trampers.
The flight here is a training flight operated by the Wakatipu Aero Club based out of Queenstown, New Zealand: the adventure capital of the world. With over a dozen remote strips of varying difficulty within a 20 minute radius, and a dizzying array of river valleys and saddles in the immediate area, Queenstown is one of the best training grounds in the world for VFR mountain flying. On top of that it is the premier general tourism destination in all of New Zealand.
