    Christchurch Airport Wins Award for Scenery Experience

    Funny how this airport always find its way into news headlines ????

    September 13 2011
    Christchurch Airport Wins Award for Scenery Experience
    Christchurch International Airport has won an international award for its innovative theming.
    The airbridges and video theming initiatives around the airport won The Best Arrivals Experience award at the 2011 Future Travel Experience awards in Vancouver.
    Airport Chief Executive Jim Boult says the award proves it’s not only travellers who are being wowed by the theming.
    “We want to make Christchurch an unforgettable airport, from the moment people step off the plane,” he says. “This award suggests we are on the right track.
    “Visitors step off international flights into themed airbridges, with floor-to-ceiling images of amazing scenery. Each theme is enhanced by appropriate sounds or smells – scenes of MacKenzie Country have the sweet smell of hay and the golden sandy beaches of the Abel Tasman National Park have the familiar scent of sunscreen.”

      Computer fault delays Christchurch flights

      LATEST: Flights are being delayed at Christchurch Airport after a network failure crashed the facility's computer system.
      Airport chief executive Jim Boult said the network failure had affected the airport's baggage system and JetStar airline's check-in system.
      The last international flight of the day had already checked-in before the failure occurred, meaning only domestic flights were affected.
      Flights were able to get through, but delays could be expected as baggage details had to "manually loaded" into the system, Boult said.
      "Obviously our priority is to get systems back up and running."
      All possible resources were being put into getting the system back up, he said.

          Hi All,

          Time for an update on NZCH.
          I am now back in Christchurch, but have found that my SBS1-ER has gone deaf while sitting here idle over the last few months.
          I am still working through the process to get it investigated by either ML&S or Kinetic.
          As soon as I have some positive info I will provice another update. Meantimekeep up the good work.

              NZWN-1 Has appeared!

              Good work that man (whoever you may be) That should be all but the deep south covered. My satellite dish still makes my coastal NZCH-NZWN fall off around the Kaikoura Coasts to bridge the gap however.

                  Hi All,

                  Another update on NZCH. Before I got a chance to do any further fault finding, i got asked to head overseas.
                  I am currently in Regensberg Germany and will not be returning to NZ until 27th October.
                  Sorting the receiver or antenna is first item on the list after that.

                  Regards,
                  Brent (NZCH)

                    • Air New Zealand brings Dreamliner to New Zealand

                      Wednesday, 19 October 2011, 9:56 am
                      Press Release: Air New Zealand Air New Zealand brings Dreamliner to New Zealand
                      New Zealanders will be among the first people in the Southern Hemisphere to see the new Boeing 787 aircraft when Air New Zealand brings it to Auckland for the first time from 12-14 November.
                      Air New Zealand will host the Boeing 787-8 test aircraft at its engineering base at Auckland International Airport for two days. Exact timings of the 787's arrival on Saturday 12 November non-stop from Seattle will be confirmed in the coming weeks, but will be timed to give Aucklanders the best chance of seeing the aircraft as it flies into Auckland.
                      "We're looking forward to seeing the 787 in our skies for the first time. This is an aircraft which has the exciting environmental advantage of using up to 20 percent less fuel while also being able to carry up to 50 percent more cargo than other jet aircraft of comparative size," says Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Rob Fyfe.
                      Air New Zealand is the launch customer for the larger 787-9 variant, which will have a greater range capability and seating capacity than the 787-8.



                      "Once the 787-9 goes into service sometime in 2014 it will change how New Zealanders fly and how we bring the world to New Zealand. Its composite structure enables better cabin humidity and lower relative cabin altitude for a more comfortable flying experience," Mr Fyfe said.
                      The aircraft on display in Auckland will be one of the first test aircraft produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes and as such is fitted with test equipment.

                        • Got my act together and put the antenna on the roof after work today (Summer light allowed for it)

                          The 50mile or so gap between kaikoura and woodend now appears to be overlapping with NZWN - YAY! (I think the satellite dish at same level was to blame)

                          The downside to this, is the amount of low signal traffic I was previously missing from the ATR72 and Dash8s A/C is now streaming in so fast the poor PIC can't keep up with both ADS and Mode-S packets at the same time. ~15 on the go at any 1 peak time now.

                          The true test comes in a few hours with the Trans-Tasman links. And during the weekend when some AKL-DUD flights should come past.

                          • Hi All,


                            I have heard back from the guys at Kinetic telling me that they have repaired my SBS1-ER. Apparently it was faulty. I expect it back here in NZ in the next few days and will get it back on air ASAP. I am confident that my antenna is still performing as before, so coverage should be as before.

                            Regards,

                            Brent NZCH
