Taieri Aerodrome (IATA: NZTI) is an aerodrome 2.7 NM (5 km) west of Dunedin, New Zealand.

History

Present day

Taieri Aerodrome is home to the Otago Aero Club, New Zealand's oldest aero club[1], being established in 1927. In addition to being a social organisation, the aero club offers flying school. There are also a number of businesses that operate from the airfield, including those that specialise in maintenance and aircraft restoration. These include Southair Aviation (GA aircraft maintenance provider), Custom Aviation (light aircraft maintenance and construction), Heliotago, and Highland Helicopters.

The aerodrome is host to the popular biennial Wings & Wheels day, which sees a variety of aircraft and vintage cars on display[2].
