Located in Central Otago, Alexandra is a fruit and sheep growing district with a population of approximately 4,500. Alexandra was originally settled by gold miners who found the river alluvial gold easy pickings. Now the town is a thriving farming community situated between Queenstown to the west and Dunedin to the east.

Alexandra Aerodrome Central Otago Flying Club (Inc)

Alexandra is located in the very heart of Central Otago, about 3/4 of the way down the South Island of New Zealand. Our lat/long is approx 45.20 deg S, 169.35 deg E.
"Alex" is also about as far from the sea as you can get in NZ, and as a consequence gets hot Summers and cool Winters. Summer maximums can reach into the mid 30's (deg C) and winter temperatures of well below freezing are common.
Flying-wise, the weather is pretty good! Our climate is dry so seldom is flying cancelled due to weather. Alex has both sealed and grass runways. The field altitude is 750'.

The club owns a Cessna 172 for flight training and aerotowing; a 2-seat Twin Astir glider; and a single seat PW5 glider for solo flying.

Our private glider fleet is currently LS1f, PIK20A, PIK20E, Phoebus C and set to grow further. Our private power aircraft include Rotorway Exec and R22 helicopters, and Tecnam P96Golf microlight and others..
