First King Air 350 for NZ Register arrives

Arriving at its new Nelson home on the afternoon of 19Dec for Golden Wings Ltd was Beechcraft 350i King Air N80427, soon to be registered ZK-MMM/2 replacing King Air C90GTi of the same registration that was only in NZ for a few months earlier this year.   It was flown to NZ by Range Flyers and was noted flying Broome to Sydney 18Dec then to Auckland and Nelson 19Dec.  It arrived at Hawker Pacific's Ardmore hanger on the morning of 20Dec for certification and associated work.

In addition to the arrival of ZK-MMM, there are apparently two additional twin Beech variants due for delivery to our shores within the coming weeks.
