Airvan ZK-FSS heads south

Gippsland GA8 Airvan ZK-FSS underwent an ownership change on 01 September 2017 according to CAA records with a move to Queenstown based Glenorchy Air Services & Tourist Company Ltd. 

The light utility aircraft started out in the South Island with Air Safaris as ZK-SAF from November 2002 until becoming ZK-FSS in December 2016 when it moved north to operate with Flystark operating from both Ardmore and Whitianga to numerous locations on partial scheduled and air taxi type services. 

As at the end of September, ZK-FSS was spied at Ardmore still in full Flystark colours however it was re-registered ZK-ORC (GlenORChy) in mid October.
