Tecnam P 92s of New Zealand (2) - P 92S Echo Models

The next few Tecnam P 92s to be registered were three P 92S Echo models.  This model had a remodelled fuselage with extra cabin windows and a smoother top fuselage line.  This was an early version of the later P 92 Echo Super but I understand it could be fitted with 80 HP or 100 HP Rotax engines.

ZK-EKO2 (c/n 465) was registered to Giovanni Nustrini of Auckland on 26/7/00 and then on 26/7/01 it went the the Northern Recreational Flying Club of Dargaville.  They had it until 11/12/08 when it went back to the agents Tercnam NZ Ltd of Papakura.  Then on 26/2/09 ownership transferred to EKO Aviation Ltd of Taupo with whom it is still current.  It is photo'd above at the 2001 SAANZ flyin at Ashburton when it was very new.

ZK-CFC2 (c/n 520) was registered to the Coromandel Flying Club on 16/12/00 and it is still current with them nearly 21 years later.  It is photo'd above on approach to Pauanui on 30/1/16.

ZK-OYZ (c/n 530) was registered to Richard Goord of Auckland on 23/2/01  It is photo'd at Rangiora on 1/7/01.  On 14/8/06 it was registered to Horton Industries Ltd of Auckland and on 19/9/06 it was cancelled to be registered ZK-PAB2.

ZK-PAB2 flew on with Horton Industries Ltd until 3/4/09 when ownership transferred to Kevin Taylor Enterprises Ltd of Helensville.  It is photo'd above at Parakai on 1/3/09.  On 17/5/11 it went South to Dean Waller and  Roy Waddingham of Lincoln and more recently of Christchurch with whom it is still current.
