Odds and Ends at Ardmore

CTC Aviation's Cessna 172S ZK-WKT carried out a touch and go at Ardmore 16Nov, first time I've seen this example.

17Nov early afternoon saw the departure of a Pacific Aerospace 750XL from Ardmore and it headed south. I hung around for to possibly return as thought I heard the pilot report heading to the training area, however after an hour still no sign of it. Anyone know which one it was, I didn't catch the callsign. It appeared to be all white.

Tecnam 2002 ZK-NPS was carrying out local flights and is currently registered to a Tauranga address.

Avid Flyer Speedwing ZK-RWT was also carrying out circuits this afternoon.

Massey Aviation's Diamond DA42 Twinstar ZK-MTS was positioned nicely outside Hawker Pacific.


  1. The Twinstar is agood looking aircraft.

    Does anybody know the route that was used to delvier the aircraft to NZ?

  2. They ferried:
    London, Canada to York, Nebraska, then to Bullhead, Arizona/Nevada border. Then to Sacramento, Hilo, Christmas Island, Pago Pago, Nadi and Auckland. There is an article in the latest Kiwiflyer magazine (issue 7 Oct/Nov 2009).

  3. Thanks for the information on the article in the Kiwiflyer Magazine. I got a copy today.
