EAA Acropsort II ZK-FLY at Paraparaumu

Nick Furmage of the Stratford Aero Club Sport Flyers flew down to Paraparaumu on 28 January and while there he photo'd this EAA Acrosport II from the cockpit of the club's Zenair CH 601 ZK-SSF2:

ZK-FLY2 (c/n AACA/635) was previously ZK-VWT and you can see its history HERE  It was sold to J J Flynn of Masterton on 15/4/16 and its registration changed to ZK-FLY2 on 21/6/16.  This is the first time I have seen it with its new registration. It appears to be being operated as a single seater.

Thanks for the photo Nick.


  1. Great photo Nick - she's only got a 78L tank which equates to around 1 hour 45 mins safe endurance.
    So topping up is a common occurrence.

    Here's a couple of air to air photos taken immediately after the above shot was taken:

    Still being operated as a two seater with full dual controls, although the front bubble is removable and replaced with a cockpit cover:

    Thanks for the post Sir Minty - very cool to be featured on a blog I've been following for years.
    Your history of ZK-VWT has certainly been a good resource for me.

  2. Thanks for your comment Josh, and I am glad that you enjoy the blog. Great Instagram photos too. I reckon they are worth another post - are you OK with that?

  3. Josh - Can you send me jpegs of the 2 photos? to
