Pipistrel Alpha Electro ZK-EAL/4 at Paraparaumu

New Zealand's first electric powered aircraft, the Pipistrel Alpha Electro ZK-EAL4 has been carrying out demonstration flights with the Kapiti Districts Aero Club in June:

ZK-EAL4 (c/n 942 AE 60) is owned by Electric Airline Ltd of Lyttleton and was trailered up to Paraparaumu from its Rangiora base (as it does not have the range to fly there).

A couple of days ago the Aero Club showed off the aircraft to local VIPs including Kapiti Coast District Councillors, no doubt hoping to make them more aware of the plans to save Paraparaumu airport.
