Coronet Peak is the main flying site in Queenstown.
The primary takeoff is 2300ft over the valley floor and 2 miles away.
The landing field is below the next mountain over... the Steiger.
The Steiger is a bit lower (only about 1,000ft) but is directly over the landing field.
Most of the Steiger is covered in a pine forest... except the top.
So the other day, my flatmate Gerardo decides... "hey, let's land on the Steiger".
"Sure, sounds fun"
Hahahaha... something you definitely do not get to do back home (on the east coast).
