Apache Airliners

The Piper Pa22 Apache was used by a number of small airlines, always on VFR operations. These are some photos of Apaches from Allan Woollers collection...

James Aviation used ZK-BYB to run services to and from Rotorua on behalf of NAC...  (see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2010/06/nac-apache.html)
ZK-BLP, seen here at Mangare was used by Northland Airways for its services to Whangarei. It was later used by Golden Coast Airways (see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2011/03/from-hamilton-to-greymouth-golden-coast.html and http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.com/2011/03/golden-coast-airlines-greymouth.html) and Phoenix Airways between Greymouth and Christchurch (see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2011/03/first-trans-alpine-air-service-phoenix.html)
