Twin engine training.

On 19th of March 2005 I managed to avoid being detected by the Oamaru Airport security system to get a couple of shots of the North Otago Aero Clubs twin engine trainer.


  1. Let me get this straight...

    An open cockpit, twin engined, ski-equipped tail dragger with what looks like half a small keg for a fuel tank.

    Nice! How do we get a rating? :-)

  2. Actually it's a cut down hot water cylinder.
    Note lights for night flying.
    AIt is aproved for flight into known icing conditions (skis).
    Ratings available, I would imagine, by the greasing of palms.
    I have it on good authority that when calculating take off distances that the curvature of the earth has to be taken into effect.
