Vans RV 12 ZK-OPT First Flight on 16-8-2022

As seen on Sunday on TV 1, the Otago Aero Club's new Vans RV 12 ZK-OPT took to the air for the first time at Taieri recently.  

ZK-OPT (c/n 121045) was built by students of the Otago Polytech and was registered to the Otago Aero Club on 18/7/22.  Its first flight was carried out by Colin Chalmers who is the Aero Club's Chief Microlight Instructor, on Tuesday 16 August 2022.  The image is a screenshot from the TV news item.

It is the seventh student built RV 12 to fly here following the Mercury Bay Area School's ZK-MBA, ZK-ERV, ZK-EAA and ZK-MBB, as well as ZK-TFP which was built by Nelson students and ZK-SMB which was built by students from Hastings and Havelock North.
