Tecnam P 2004 Bravos of New Zealand (2) - 2006 and 2007 Aircraft

A further five Tecnam Bravos were imported during 2006 and 2007.  In order of their dates of registration they were:

ZK-LLY (c/n 039) was registered on 1/2/06 to Dr G M Rogers of Wanaka.  On 28/2/14 ownership changed to the Middle Districts Sport Flying Club of Feilding and it was ferried North on 12/3/14.  They changed their namre to the Feilding Flying Club on 11/8/14, and it is photo'd in their ownership at the 2017 RAANZ flyin at Rangiora on 1/4/17.

Also registered on the same day, 1/2/06 was ZK-OWE (c/n 038) for R A Owens of Christchurch.  It is photo'd above at Masterton on 22/2/06, possibly on its delivery flight South.  ZK-OWE became our shortest lived Tecnam when it crashed at Wanaka on 25/2/06 and was rolled up into a ball, making for a life of only 3 weeks!  It was cancelled from the register on 4/8/06.  We are fortunate to have a photo of it - thanks Dave.

ZK-DDL2 (c/n 051) was registered on 3/4/06 o Diamond Plant and Equipment Ltd of Kaiapoi.  On 18/11/06 it went to Minaret Enterprises Ltd of Wanaka and then on 22/6/07 back to Diamond Plant and Equipment Ltd.  On 26/7/09 ownership changes to M A Green of Timaru and then on 19/4/11 it went to the Glassford Partnership of Oxford.  It is photo'd above at the 2007 SAANZ flyin at Ashburton, on 4/2/07.  Most recently ownership has changed to D L Ainslie of Arrowtown, on 26/11/19.

ZK-RRG (c/n 061) was registered on 21/9/06 to R Goord of Amberly, and I believe it is still owned by him.  It is photo'd above at Rangiora on 2/10/11.

And the final P 2004 Bravo to be registered here was ZK-JTB (c/n 094) which was registered to M J (John) McCaul of Christchurch on 21/6/07.  It is still current with him at Rangiora where the above photo was taken on 4/11/07.

That ends the histories of Tecnam P 2004 Bravos of New Zealand.  I doubt if we will see any more of them registered here as production stopped quite a few years ago.
