New Dyn Aero Aircraft at Parakai

Leading Edge Aviation at Parakai have imported another Dyn Aero MCR 01 aircraft, which will be registered ZK-ORR (although it is not officially registered yet).

ZK-ORR is a MCR 01 ULC model which has a longer wing than the MCR 01 Club models of which there are 3 in New Zealand. It is ex F-PDAI, and as can be seen it is almost ready to fly.


  1. Nice one Sir Minty.

    As is often the case - the background is also very interesting.
    What can you tell me about that ??

  2. Background... attached to the back wall of the hangar, is Mooney ZK-CFV, which is the current 'Hangar Queen' at Leading Edge Aviation at Parakai. For those unfamiliar with the term, the 'Hangar Queen' is the project that absorbs down time between other jobs, and as Leading Edge is busy the Mooney is progressing quite slowly. CFV sufferred landing gear damage with a previous owner, this has already been fixed and the guys are now working on general restoration. When flyable again, CFV will be Bryn Lockie's personal aircraft, though probably also available to a small number of approved pilots.
