The weather at Rangiora on 7 September was nice with a light wind pretty much straight down Runway 25. This was after several days of really grotty cold weather with low cloud and strong winds. I guess because of this there were a lot of sport aircraft movements, and I thought that the number would be more than I have seen on a regular day at any other airfield across New Zealand. Here are some of them: (and there were others)
Timaru owned Tecnam P2002 Sierra ZK-MVS was doing circuits.
As was the recently registered Savannah S ZK-SRT2
and our earliest registered Savannah ZK-DJB2.
Our latest Zenair CH 701 ZK-DUX2 made a test flight.
The Fern Air Syndicate's 90 HP Piper Cub ZK-CXC was very active.
Then later on Paul Godfrey lifted off in his nice Kitfox IV ZK-JFA.
A great day! - thanks Blue Bus.
