I popped into Franks hangar at Rangiora this morning to catch up with his latest addition.
Zenair CH701 STOL ZK-EDY (c/n 7-3988) as a project started back in 2001 by Gary Eady of Whangarei.
It had a six cylinder Jabiru 3300 engine and Canadian PegaStol wings with auto retracting slats and symmetrical ailerons with the wing also having a different section with more ribs and clad with .020 thou skin.
It was recently trailered south to Rangiora for Frank Barker who operates the 701 STOL ZK-NVY.
ZK-NVY is c/n 7-5770 was imported from the US by Frank Barker in 2014.
ZK-JUG c/n 7-6067 is the Dean Philip example which came in from the US in 2012.
Now Honda Viking powered.
701 STOL ZK-STE c/n 7-6120 with its 2200 Jabiru engine visible was registered to Stephen Preest of Waipara on 9 September last year.
All four have featured on this site previously.
