Air Kaikoura at home

Thanks to A Murphy for these superb shots of the Air Kaikoura aircraft on 3 July 2021


Gippsland GA8 Airvan ZK-ORC

The elusive one... I have been trying to get a photo of Gippsland GA8 Airvan ZK-EHS for ages. Might have to be a special trip to Kaikoura

Cessna 172 ZK-JCT, Airvan ZK-ORC and 

Aeropro EuroFox ZK-TUG


  1. Wouldn't it be Cool if Air Kaikoura served Blenheim from Kaikoura with a Cessna 172 Skyhawk while Christchurch would be served from Kaikoura with a Gippsland Airvan

  2. Southflight tried a Christchurch - Kaikoura service but it didn't last... http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2014/11/fly-south-southflight-aviation.html

    Sounds Air operated a service between Blenheim and Kaikoura when the road was closed... There was no demand when the road opened. Sounds Air also tried Wellington-Kaikoura but it didn't work. http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2015/01/sounds-airs-kaikoura-service.html

    Air Kaikoura have also tried Wellington. At the moment the service is in recess but it still could be a good future option for them... https://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2018/01/air-kaikoura-and-its-parikawa-life-line.html

  3. Busy little airport at Kaikoura the terminal is really nice also.
