Congratulations to all who competed on the weekend, especially the winners and placegetters! From a team of six competitors, Wellington had one win and three other placegetters, so a good result overall [I think I have counted correctly]!
Well done to Flying NZ and the Kapiti Districts Aero Club for putting on a great event, and well done to everyone for a friendly, yet competitive environment and a fun day! :-)

The next aircraft is a Piper PA18, ZK-BQX. This is very similar to the Super Cub I have started flying, except I understand it has a 90hp engine, instead of the 150hp in the Super Cub. It would be very interesting to fly this some day. This aircraft is operated by Cub Partners and I believe it is based at Paraparaumu aerodrome.

This Vans RV6, ZK-VRV, is registered to a Porirua address, but also based at Paraparaumu aerodrome.This aircraft and pilot flew across the Tasman Sea to Australia earlier this year [click here for info]!

Last up is a cool looking machine from Hawkes Bay & East Coast Aero Club, a Rans S-6ES Coyote II, ZK-KIX. This is a class 2 microlight [meaning it has two seats]. This looks like a really nice aircraft and I wouldn't mind having a fly one day... maybe I should have asked on Saturday :-) Still, there's always the chance of a trip to visit.
