A "new" PA28-181 for Wellington Aero Club

I took my first look at ZK-FHQ, Wellington Aero Club's "new" PA28-181 Archer today. Club members will know that this aircraft has been around the Club for many years, but it's just out of the paint shop with a fresh coat of shiny new paint. It looks stunning! The aircraft just has a couple of minor maintenance items to attend to then we can use it again.

I didn't mind the old paint scheme too much, but I have to say, this is a vast improvement. I'm sure that it will be well received by members who will be very keen to fly it.

Anyway, here's a photo of our "new" looking aircraft. Now we are all waiting for ZK-EIF, the PA28-201R to return to the Club. It'll have new paint, engine, propellor and goodness knows what else. That will be a sight to see!

Yeah. The inside did not get done up, but still looks quite nice. Can't wait until the Arrow gets back. That's got new almost everything :-)
