Homebuilt Aircraft from the Waikato 25-1-2018

As I worked my way up from the King Country to the Waikato on a Thursday afternoon there were a few original homebuilt aircraft from the AACA era on offer:

At Te Kuiti was Gary Williams' Jodel D 11 ZK-KSD (c/n AACA/430).  It was originally built by Gary and first registered in April 2004.  It could be parked up at Te Kuiti to give room for the RV 8 that Gary Williams is building at Otorohanga

Hangared at Hamilton Aero Maintenance at Hamilton Airport was Dave Stewart's Squirecraft SA 102.5 Cavalier ZK-DJS (c/n AACA/250).  This was built by Dave and was first registered in February 1984.  I was told that it hasn't flown for a couple of years but it still looks in great condition.

And a bit further North at Te Kowhai Zenith CH 200 ZK-ZEN (c/n AACA/662) was taxying back to its hangar after doing circuits.  This aircraft was built by Barry Vivian at New Plymouth and was first registered in November 1983.
