The Classic Aviation Adventurer CA18-1530-C200 ZK-CMR (c/n PT001) was registered to Malcolm Savill of Hamilton on 10-07-2015.
Below is what the N Z Aviation News Magazine said about it at the time of its registration.
'Classic Aviation Designs Ltd (CADL) is a company that morphed out of Malcolm Savill’s Performance Engineering which designed and built off road racing trucks in the 80's and 90's. The concept of CADL was formed in 2008 and the company formally started in 2010. The vision is to reintroduce affordable aviation at a grassroots level to new and experienced builders of aircraft, offering either scratch-built plans, or complete kits. In 2012 Malcolm unveiled his Cubflyer Education Programme at Oshkosh. (see http://www.aviationnews.co.nz/news/10/28/The-Cub-inspiration/). This programme is centred around the building of the Adventurer CA18 aircraft over a three year period within High Schools. This full size reproduction is of a Piper Cub PA 18 but constructed mainly from timber.
The prototype is classified as an amateur built aircraft. There are three models in the CA18 series ranging from microlight class to full weight amateur built aircraft.
The CA18-1530-C200 was registered as ZK-CMR in July to Malcolm Savill of Hamilton.'
