Another training establishment at Hamilton is Waikato Aviation which is the commercial arm of the Waikato Aero Club. Although much smaller than L3 it operates a fleet of a Cessna 172, two Piper Archers, one Diamond DA 42, and a trio of Alpha R 2160s.
Cessna 172R ZK-WAM2 (c/n 17280275) was ex ZK-CGD2.
Piper PA 28-181 Archer III ZK-WIT (c/n 2843563).
I caught up with ZK-WCD an hour later, doing circuits at Te Kowhai.
All the Waikato Aviation aircraft have the slogan "Go Beyond" on their noses - I hope it is not for Go Beyond Vne!.
