Hot off the press Mark Pattenden photo'd the newly registered Turbo Stationair ZK-MLP of Merlin Labs at Tauranga today. This aircraft was previously ZK-OAY with several South Island owners having been first registered here in March 1999 from South Africa where it had been ZS-OAY.
The Merlin Labs work is an example of the new technology that is coming and that I referred to in my recent post on Mosquito helicopter drones (also at Tauranga).
Thanks for the photo Mark.
I was told that it is to replace their Cessna 172S ZK-CTY/3 for staff transfers between Paaraparaumu and KerikeriReplyDelete
Thanks for the comment. I have altered the post a bit to reflect that.ReplyDelete
Yes from what I've been told this is suppose to eventually replace ZK-CTY and be used as a shuttle to and from Kerikeri as the staff live in Kapiti and the Cessna 208 ZK-MLN now lives at Kerikeri.ReplyDelete
