A couple from Taieri

A quick flit through Taieri last Wednesday picked up these two beauties.
 Fresh from the Custom Aviation Ltds production line was this Rans S-7S Coyote Courier ZK-PTP5 (c/n 1112583) for Peter Kernohan of Levin. It was registered on 20-11-2013 and takes up the registration as previously used by Peter on his Untravia Pelican which he re-registered as ZK-PLP back on 02-08-2005.
The first ZK-PTP allocation went to the Air Safaris and Services Pilatus Porter, with issue two being a PAC CT/4E Airtrainer for the Royal Thai Air Force. ZK-PTP3 was a re-registration of the Titan Tornado II ZK-KAA in 2001 - and which reverted back to ZK-KAA in mid 2004.
If per chance you need a Rans (or I guess anything for that matter) built up - there is a slot in the production line early next year.
This pic is taken looking through the fin of the next Rans S-6 on line.
ZK-WET2 (c/n N471) was imported from Australia by Craig Buist and registered on 04-09-2013.
Seen here in the back of the Aero Club hangar having its undercarriage serviced. It was registered on Oz as VH-AJB on 05-11-1999 and had all of 162 flying hours when Craig purchased her.


  1. Rans S7S is Rans Courier,not coyote

  2. Your are absolutely correct.
    Thanks for that.
