Just : Another amateur built Aircraft

The first of its type to be registered in NZ.
Just Aircraft Highlander ZK-MLT (c/n JA212) was registered on 13-01-2011 to Thompson and Hood of Ealing (John Hood is the NZ agent). The kit came from Just Aircraft in South Carolina and was assembled by Grant Coldicott and first flown by Grant on 31-05-2011. Engine is the turbocharged Rotax 914 four stroke of 115hp.
A little bit more info can be seen in the latest NZ Aviation News Magazine, page 6.
There is another example being built up Tauranga way which is to be powered by a radial engine.
