A visit to Taupo on a stunning summer day offered plenty of aviation activity including down at the lake shore Taupo's Floatplane Co's Cessna U206G ZK-EFI taxied into the dock with Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe on show in the background

Over at the Taupo Gliding Club's Centennial Park airfield gliders from around the North Island were active and it was good to see amongst them the 60 year old Schleicher Ka6CR Rhonsegler II ZK-GBU from Auckland.

Also of interest our sole TeST TST 14 Bonus M motorglider ZK-GUL which is Czech built and was registered here in 2006 in the microlight category

At Taupo Airport AS355F1 ZK-HML arrived now wearing Inflite titling

  1. I was at Taupo doing some gliding when you called Richard. Pity we didn't catch up. ZK-GBU was the second glider to fly across Cook Strait. The first was Skylark 2 ZK-GAS. The pilot on both occasions was Keith Wakeman.
