Waimate duo

The usually desolate airfield at Waimate was surprisingly active on Friday July the 1st.
The Waimate Aviation Ltd Piper PA28-140 Cherokee ZK-CUL (c/n 28-23915) was out getting some sunshine. This had previously been with the Waimate Aero Club between 1993 and May of 2008 when it was sold to the present syndicate.
In the circuit was the Waimate Aero Clubs Rans S-6S Coyote 11 ZK-WTE (c/n 02081869). This joined the Club in January and has created new life in the Club.
I believe the similar new Rans aircraft with the Wairarapa and the Gore Clubs have also stimulated Club activity.


  1. Any chance of getting a photo of CUL in the paint finish of the early 2000's . I believe it was a light blue colour?

  2. It was blue, as per the blog post from at least 1990 until I last noted it in 2017..
    I have a photo of it taken in March 1998 ..
    Email me at if you would like a copy.
