IFR Approach to Rotorua

As part of my IFR training, we went over to Rotorua Airport to practice holds and approaches.

The aim was to get us used to both how the Cessna 172 handles as well as how to manage the aircraft all the way from the holding pattern, through the approach and onto the missed approach.
After having done sufficient laps of the hold to prepare myself, we did a couple of approaches and missed approaches followed by this final VOR/DME approach to land.

Thanks to Fraser for filming this for me
