Central North Island Floatplanes.

I would like to welcome minicooper to the blogosphere.
Here is his first offering.
Above is the Cessna U206G Stationair ZK-FEO (c/n 03797) of Volcanic Air Safaris seen taking off from Lake Rotorua on 04-10-2013.
This 1977 model 206 arrived in Auckland on New Years Day 1983 thanks to Dennis Thompson International Ltd.
Five days later it was registered to DTI as ZK-FEO and transferred to Geyserland Floatplane Holdings Ltd of Rotorua on 27-01-1983.
Next listed owner is Sulphur City Aviation Ltd from 17-08-1988 and it appeared with Floatplane Air Services and Volcanic Air Services titles over the next few years.
On 16-10-1993 it came under the Volcanic Air Safaris name.


Below is Cessna U206G Stationair 6 II ZK-FPO (c/n 05772) as seen returning from a scenic flight to Lake Taupo on 05-10-2013. This 206 was first registered in NZ on 27-06-1988 to the Broady Syndicate (B K and K E J Broady) and was seen in the Nelson area until moving to join Volcanic Air Safaris Ltd of Rotorua on 07-05-2007.
