I recently went for a quick flight in the Nanchang CJ6A, ZK-MAO. It was just over 1.5 hours, from Wellington, abeam Paraparaumu then Foxpine, to Tokomaru, across the ranges and down to Masterton. After a quick stop to refuel, we returned to Wellington.
Coming along for the ride was Ady, who took the photos and video in this post.

Lastly, the landing at Masterton wasn't too bad. I blame the shuddering on the videographer 😂😂
