Nice one Jason and Chellie.
Below is an extract from the NZ Aviation New Magazine.
A new Vans RV7 ZK-WRV, our twenty first, was listed with Jason Wakelin of Lincoln in mid-January. WRV = Wakelin RV was a quick build kit which took just over four years to complete.
With a sliding canopy and powered with an IO-360 engine with electronic ignition to a constant speed propeller.
It has a single Dynon 10 inch Skyview screen to give PFD/MAP/ENG or any combination.
An Ipod is mounted on the right hand panel for Nav display or back up instruments.
Jason is a first officer with Cathay Pacific based in Auckland and will base the aircraft at Ashburton where he was previously a member of the DBI Syndicate in the Falconer F.12 ZK-DBI.
