Wellington Aero Club Aircraft

Here are the pictures of some of the lighter aircraft at the open day. Most of these are available for hire by Wellington Aero Club [http://www.flywellington.co.nz/] members, although the Saratoga is only used for Capital Air [http://www.capitalair.co.nz/] flights and I think perhaps the Beech 58 will be.

I forgot [!] to get any pictures of the Club's PA28 Warrior and Archer aircraft, and the Piper Arrow PA28-201 was away for the day.

Top to bottom they are:

2 x PA38-112 Tomahawks - the Club's primary trainers
Cessna C172
Mooney M20C
Piper Saratoga
Beech 58

Wow a lot of awesome pictures there!

I saw WAC and for a second thought it was WAG!

737 flight deck eh? Nice!

Looks like it was a great show!

Gavin,

Yep - got that right! It was awesome! Wellington is a very nice place to fly in many ways.

Just a shame we don't have harvards, the Thunder Mustang, Tiger Moths and so forth based here - then it would be just perfect :-) I also miss dealing with 8-10 aircraft in the circuit...

Then again, you don't get a 737 parked on the AAC apron for an open day!

That's true, but I'd like to see 'em try lol!
