Moving up.

 Back in September of 2008 Colin Chalmers of Mosgiel purchased the Aerochute Dual ZK-JCH3 from John Hyndman. This was sold to Mark Thom also of Mosgiel on 17-07-2009. This was replaced two days later by the Micro Bantam B22J ZK-WBB , c/n 00-0184 , which Colin went into partnership with Jonathon Elliott. It was ferried south through Rangiora on 26-07-2009 (photo below).  WBB was first registered on 02-11-2000 to the Waihi Beach Bantam Syndicate - hence the ZK-WBB letters.
They sold this on to Ian Galloway of Wanaka on 30-06-2010, having earlier (17-03-2010) purchased the Tecnam P92 Echo ZK-MIC2 from M & J Brenstrum of Dargaville. Photo of ZK-MIC taken at Ashburton on 05-02-2011.
This Echo was initiall ZK-KMA1 with Ken McKee of Napier from 12-06-1998 and was re-registered as ZK-PKT1 on 01-02-2002 when it was sold to P H & K A Thompson. In March of 2003 it was sold to the Northern Wairoa Aero Club (Inc) and re-registered on the 30th as ZK-MIC2.
P & K Thompson received a new Alpi Pioneer 200 XL on 31-03-2006 and registered this as ZK-PKT2 , c/n SN97.  This they sold on to Rex and Colleen Swenson in late 2008 who in turn transferred it to the Alpi Aviation NZ Ltd late in 2009. The Chambers Elliott duo have now purchased this aircraft as from 15-03-2011. Pic below of ZK-PKT2 at Ashburton on 02-04-2007. Since then they have exported the Tecnam P92 ZK-MIC2 with it being cancelled on March 25th.
