Bushcat Aviation at Ngaruawahia

On my way down to Te Kowhai a week or so ago, I called in to see Kevin Mattson of Bushcat Aviation NZ at his property just North of Ngaruawahia.  He was keen to talk aviation  and after a cuppa he showed me around his new hangar which housed a couple of Rainbow Skyreach Bushcats.  Kevin is the New Zealand agent for Skyreach Aircraft from South Africa and he has imported four of their aircraft to date.

 ZK-ZOZ (c/n CH 148B) was first registered here on 4/11/15.

ZK-ZBR (c/n CH 149B) was first registered here on 11/8/14.

Both aircraft are for sale and if you are interested, give Kevin a call on 021 0239 8485.

Kevin also invites sport flyers to visit him at his hangar, home and airstrip that is around 1 kilometre North of Ngaruawahia on Old Taupiri Road.  The strip orientation is 12/30 and it is 310 metres from fence to fence.  Give Kevin a call before flying in as there are some specific instructions.


  1. We'd need a phone no. to give him a call…...
