AIr Kaikoura's Airvan

Congratulations to Air Kaikoura who now have Gippsland GA8 Airvan ZK-EHS on line. The Airvan is used for whale watching from Kaikoura. Thanks to my niece Donna who took this picture of it yesterday before going for a flight... 

Air Kaikoura's Gippsland Airvan ZK-EHS at Kaikoura on 30 December 2018

She had better luck than me... I was going to go on a flight some years ago when doing a series of posts on Kaikoura and was supposed to go for a fly but the weather was too dodgy!

Air Kaikoura is the commerical division of the Kaikoura Aero Club and whale watching makes up a majpr part of its activity, however, for a short time Air Kaikoura did run a regular air service that was a real lifeline for the Kaikoura community...

Kaikoura has a bit of a history of Airvans... For a number of year Sounds Air operated a scheduled air service between Wellington and Kaikoura with Airvan ZK-KLC...

Also on the Kaikoura airfield are two other Airvans, ZK-KBZ and ZK-FSR, operated by Wings over Whales.
