Westport Plane Arrives

Arriving into Auckland today was Sounds Air's new Pilatus PC-12 VH-KWO earmarked for the Wellington-Westport service. I'm really looking forward to checking it out...

On the start up is Pilatus PC12 VH-KWO at Auckland on 28 January 2015 before its flight to Omaka. To the left is Skyline Aviation's Beech King Air ZK-ZZA

This is what it is scheduled to look like


  1. Flew Sydney-Auckland-Omaka-Feilding today

  2. Interesting. All of SoundsAir's media to date has indicated the acquired aircraft would be PC-12/47E aircraft. But KWO is an older /45. I guess price is the driving force but I would have thought the extra performance and takeoff weight would have been a significant advantage for the Sounds operation.

    1. Sometimes you gotta use what is available.
