Auckland trip #3: A few other Ardmore GA aircraft

Perhaps surprisingly, considering that Ardmore is New Zealand's busiest airfield [by movements], things were fairly quite on the Saturday, with so not much general aviation [GA] activity floating around. Mind you, I didn't take the opportunity to go walking around to take a look either.

I have to say though, that it is nice to be back at a relaxed GA dominated airfield :-). Anyway, here are a few of the pictures I took of various GA aircraft.

The first two are of aircraft from Ardmore Flying School [AFS] - a Cessna 172, ZK-TAX. This Cessna is the second C172 of AFS to wear the ZK-TAX registration - the previous one sunk into the water under the low flying area some years ago... ZK-EZX is a Beech 76 Duchess, also registered to AFS.

The next two are Schweizer 269C-1 helicopters registered to Ardmore Helicopters. ZK-HVF and ZK-IMX are used for ab-initio helicopter training and seemed to be fairly busy most fo the afternoon. ZK-HYH is a Bell 206B, also registered to Ardmore Helicopters.

For the final helicopter, ZK-HSW is a Eurocopter EC 130 B4 and is registered to Advanced Flight Ltd.

The final two aircraft are a Cessna R172K operated by Air Lease Ltd and ZK-STU a Cirrus SR22, which was out for a quick local trip.
