Bigger might be better?

There is something new in the Wellington Aero Club hanger... a Cessna U206G, ZK-WWH. Today was my first chance to get up and personal with it and I'm suitably impressed!

The aircraft is not online as yet, and I don't know if I will be able to afford to fly it, but here's hoping! The photo isn't great - it was taken inside the hanger, and as you'll see from other photos, it was a grey and dreary day.

Other visitors I spotted today were a Sounds Air C208B Grand Caravan, ZK-SAA and a Skyline Aviation Beech B200C, ZK-PLK. The Skyline aircraft was here on an aero-medical mission.

WWH is ex Canterbury Aviation and was based at Christchurch International, I was wondering where it had gone to. Cheers Barry

Hi Barry,

Thanks for the info. I'm just waiting to see how much it will cost to fly [probably rather expensive :-(]. I'd like to get rated - should be a fun aircraft to fly.

PLK is named after ex CFI/CP of HBECAC and AirHB Peter Kidd. He had a lot to do with getting AirMed up and running out of HB, so good on him for finally getting his initials on the back of a beast!
