Omaka on the 27th

 Nigel Griffith had his Piper PA-18-160 Cub ZK-BOY (c/n 18-6172) with its big feet and under fuselage pod on site today.
Below is a bit of info about the pod.
 New engine fitted and Cessna 208 Caravan ZK-SAN (c/n 20800360) is nearly ready to roll out again. This was previously ZK-TZR from 2006 until being re-registered on 28-06-2013.
 Below we see Cessna 185A ZK-CBS (c/n 1850398) in its latest colour scheme.
It is awaiting the fitting of a modified hopper, being built up in Auckland, which will allow room for an instructor in the right hand seat for its new agricultural training role.
The first two ag rating trainee pilots are waiting patiently to begin training.
Ownership moved from Aoraki Mount Cook Ski Planes Ltd to Patchett Ag-Air Ltd at Blenheim on 15-02-2015. 
This Cessna has been with Mount Cook through all its changes since 1962.
