I quite like the Chinese designed/built Nanchang CJ6. Originally designed as a Chinese military ab-initio trainer, this type has gained in popularity in the west as a fairly inexpensive warbird, and after a short flight in one a couple of months ago, I have to say that it is a nice plane to fly.
Each aircraft has to be westernised somewhat, as the original instruments are all metric. In the westernised versions, at least the altimeter is changed to feet [from meters].
Several members from Wellington Aero Club are looking to form a Nanchang syndicate, so we could see one of these types crossing the ditch in the near future.
