Imported Amateur Built Aircraft at Ardmore 23-8-2014

We have had quite a few new first-of-type sport aircraft registered in New Zealand recently.

Our first Zenair CH 801 STOL (c/n 801-141) was registered ZK-PIP on 4/8/14 to Addis Holdings (Brent Addis) of Papakura.  It is ex OE-KWJ and it was imported from Austria.  The CH-801 was developed from the two seat CH 701 but it is a four seater aircraft powered by a 180 HP O-360 Lycoming engine.  It will be great to see what it is capable of in STOL competitions.

This is our fourth PIP - if this goes on we will have enough for an apple corps!

Another view of Lancair ES ZK-EDZ following from Mike Condon's post, showing the lines a little better.  It wears ZK marks which I guess could be for trans oceanic flights which it is very ca[pable of.  I understand it is likely to be based at Whenuapai.
