The Latest Members of the Van's Air Force at SAANZ Tauranga Fly In

In an earlier post I noted that the numbers of Van's aircraft in New Zealand had (just) exceeded the numbers of Jodel's. Now the gap widens.

Our second RV 8 is ZK-PJH built by P J Higgins of Rotorua and first registered on 12/5/08. Although this aircraft was registered more than a year ago, it was only recently completed and the flight to Tauranga was its first cross-country flight.

Phillip Higgins also built New Zealand's second RV 3 ZK-PMH which was first registered on 27/1/86.

The newest sport aircraft at the SAANZ flyin was RV 7A ZK-JLT which was only registered on 3/2/10. It was built by J L Talbot of Tauranga.

Also very new was RV 7A ZK-ORV which was built by G S Mulcahy of Whitianga. It was first registered on 26/11/09.
There were 16 Van's aircraft of various models at the flyin.
