Magni M 16 Gyro ZK-RPA in the Arawhata

Recently I was in contact with Peter Avery about his adventures in his Magni M 16 autogyro.  Peter is a 30,000 hour helicopter pilot who bases his autogyro between Taupo and Jackson Bay, from where he flies over spectacular South Westland and Fiordland scenery, and he has kindly sent some lovely photos.

Magni M 16 ZK-RPA2 at rest on the Arawhata River.  Peter has a DOC permit to land on riverbeds and to facilitate this he has fitted 26 inch Alaskan bush tyres and a special larger front tyre and suspension unit.  He says that the larger tyres do not affect the performance much.
