Cessna 172N ZK-JAF at Ardmore 7-1-2017

With 103 aircraft across at Pauanui things were pretty quiet at Ardmore last Saturday.  However, with a bit of poking around I photo'd Cessna 172N ZK-JAF2 (c/n 1727263) which has been around since 1993 but has not been posted on the blog previously.

ZK-JAF was previously VH-HHO and entered the New Zealand register on 5/11/93 for Mainland Air Services of Mosgiel.  It was registered to Drake Aviation Ltd of Rangiora for a short time between 4/5/98 and 28/7/98 when ownership transferred to the Waikato Aero Club at Hamilton.  Ownership then transferred to DW and MR Brown (Christian Aviation) of Takanini on 23/11/05.


  1. Nice post. Sadly however it doesn't take a flyin elsewhere to make Ardmore quiet, it's like that most days now thanks.... about time the AIP was amended and the comment NZ busiest aerodrome should be removed!

  2. Bruce Drake took the wrinkles out.
