NZ has bugged runway wind speeds


I’ve recently being doing a lot of flying around New Zealand, specifically from NZQN.

I’ve noticed that the wind speed always seems to be listed as 0kts:

Having investigated further, it seems to be that an airport in NZ either has 0Kt or nothing listed at all.

Any advice would be great, thanks.

can anyone help me ?

Public weather data was withdrawn in New Zealand other than a select number of airports:

@srcooke is entirely correct about the reason. We have not been able to get ahold of this data despite several attempts to contact NZ authorities.

Thanks a lot for posting!

Kind Regards,

No problem, thank your response! :slight_smile:
