Vincent's J32 ZK-VAI "Enters service"
Vincent Aviation's Jetstream 32EP ZK-VAI, ex VH-OTP, made its first recorded flights on behalf of Eagle Air 11 February when it was pressed into service under charter to the Air NZ Link carrier. ZK-VAI positioned from Wellington to Hamilton where it then conducted a flight to Palmerston North, then to Wellington, back to Palmerston North, onwards to Hamilton and finally finishing up in Auckland.
The aircraft was delivered to Wellington under its VH markings on 26 September 2012 still wearing the colours of the Philippine operator it flew with as RP-C863. It was placed on the NZ register 09 November and was noted making perhaps its first flight under ZK markings from Wellington to Woodbourne and return on 14 December.
