Misc Waikato

Three from the L3 Fleet.

Above on what I am told is a typical Hamilton spring day is the Diamond DA 42 ZK-CTJ2 c/n 42.102. 
This was first listed with CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Ltd on 17-02-2006 and re-listed to L3 CTS Airline Academy (NZ) Ltd on 04-09-2017.
 A couple of their Cessna 172's.
Above is the 172S ZK-CTV3 c/n 172S9990.
Below is the Cessna 172S ZK-CTP2 c/n 172S10482

Over at Matamata was our only Diamond DA 40D ZK-DIM2 c/n 1149 from the Middle Earth Flying School at Matamata.
This is ex VH-PDQ and is a factory built Diesel engine version with the Thielert TAE 125 geared and turbo charged air cooled FADEC equipped, water cooled unit with single lever pilot operation - I believe now called New Century. 
It was a heavily modified version of a Mercedes-Benz 4 cylinder inline automotive engine.
