Recently established in its own hangar at Rangiora is "The Landing Spot" ,(web site under construction). A business set up by Grant Porter to cater for the lighter end of aviation including servicing of Rotax engines. Thats Grant standing in the doorway with his Avid MkIV ZK-JHW behind and and with the Rans S6S Coyote 11 ZK-VSI tucked in the back corner.
Frames going up (15-06-2011) on this new hangar at Rangiora. Thats "The Landing Spot" behind on the right with ZK-VSI now outside and nearing the end of its repair following a recent nosewheel/prop field modification. To the left are the Anderson hangars number two and three.
By my best guess there are about 140 aircraft based at Rangiora these days.
