Big brothers 750XL ZK-JHM c/n 152 as noted at Hamilton on 23-02-09. First registered to Pacific Aerospace Corp on 07-01-2009.
750XL ZK-KAH c/n 149 at Hamilton also on the 23rd having radio equipment installed.
A PAC listing since 19-11-2008.


  1. Some of the 750XL's escape without any pics, but that ZK-JHM will be 'well recorded'!! I was there a couple of days later - I noted it was all tanked up, so I guess it is O/S bound. I also saw ZK-KAH, but decided it was too hard. ZK-JIF was inside the factory, almost finished with a blue tail and taped on registration.

  2. ZK-JHM is bound for Switzerland...Currently in India

  3. Today ZK-JHM arrived at its final destination in Berom√ľnster, Switzerland. After we lost our first PAC last year (ZK-JPP), this is its successor.

    Here are some impressions from the arrival (still unpainted):
