Rangiora on Friday 07-02-2020.
A stranger parked up was the Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee Challenger ZK-DGO (c/n 28-7305220) of Hawera Piper Ltd of Hawera.
This spent its first fifteen years with the Waikato Aero Club followed by twenty two years with Scherer Farms Ltd of Putaruru.
A new Rangiora resident is this Alpi Aviation Pioneer 300 (Karamea) Hawk ZK-RJV (c/n 296) now with Kevin Dore and being ex Geoff Rogers of Wanaka.
Kevin also has the Alpi Aviation Pioneer 200 Hawk ZK-KPD.
Cessna 182D T/D ZK-MJP (c/n 18253552) of Malcolm J and Morgan J Price of Rangiora was converted to taildragger mode in Australia in mid-1998 and ferried into Ardmore back on 18-01-2001.
The Rans S-6ES Coyote II ZK-JOR (c/n WAS0893530) began as a tail wheeler with the Canterbury Recreational Aircraft Club Inc in October 2006.
Just over a year later it had a bit of a whoopsie and came back on line with nose gear.
The Club sold it to Don Bulmer in September 2016 after they had purchased their second Tecnam P92 Echo ZK-RGB2 in August 2026.
It has recently changed hands to Duncan Woolley of Christchurch and is seen here with the new owner being checked out.
In the case of RJV and KPD I suppose its handy to have two Alpi's in your shedReplyDelete
