Christchurch, New Zealand
Christchurch is the gateway to Antarctica, as well as a one of the largest cities on the HIPPO route. The stop in Christchurch allows for any needed maintenance that perhaps could not be performed at smaller locations, and positions the NSF/NCAR GV very nicely to fly as far south as possible and return safely on one load of fuel.
We are working closely with NIWA to organize an Education and Outreach Event while the NASF/NCAR GV is in New Zealand. Stay tuned for more information regarding that special event!
