Floatplane ZK-FPO at Taupo

Taupos Floatplane Ltd have two Cessna 206 floatplanes based on Lake Taupo.
Here we see Cessna U206G Stationair 6 ZK-FPO (c/n 20605772) being readied for a days work.
After some preliminary cleaning and preflight inspection at its mooring near the Lake exit it is water taxied over to the daytime mooring.
And then more thoroughly washed down all over.
This airframe went directly onto the Canadian register during construction at Wichita, Kansas in 1980 as C-GGMI.
It came onto the NZ register for the Broady Syndicate of Auckland on 27-06-1988 and was transferred to Volcanic Air Safaris at Rotorua from 07-05-2007.
It was listed with its current operator Taupos Floatplane Ltd on 03-07-2013.
Their other floatplane is ZK-EFI.
