It's easy to see the difference between the weather today and what we had last weekend! Last weekend was grey, gloomy and raining, today has been bright and dry.
Needless to say, there has been a lot of Club flying today, including Piper PA28R-201, ZK-EIF, which hasn't been flying for a couple of months. Also, we had a Canterbury Aero Club visitor, in the form of another Piper PA28R-200, ZK-DUY. The difference between the -200 and -201? The -200 has the slab wing [sometimes also called the Hershey wing, because it's shaped like a chocolate bar!], and the -201 has a more complex shape.
Other aircraft included Cessna 172R, ZK-NAD from Nelson Aviation College, and lastly, something a little bigger, Aerospatiale-Alenia ATR72-212A, ZK-MCP, of Mount Cook Airline with its plain white rudder.
