A visitor today was this older Cessna 172F, ZK-CHN, registered to a Porirua address. This aircraft is clearly an older model with the venturis on the side [instead of an electrical vacuum pump], but looks nice enough having just had a quick wash.
Other news is that we've just had a very tasty dinner at the aero club, with one of our members raising money for a Christchurch earthquake appeal. A great dinner, and a great cause! Yum! You can always make money from pilots for a good cause, especially where there is food involved!
