    Some pics of my new ride ;)

    thought it was about time I put up a few pics....

    There's nothing intensely exciting I'm afraid, though I'll be sure to take more aerial pics once I start doing solo Nav's across the country - hopefully get some good photo's from that!

    Anyway, here's a few for now:


    First off, here's one of the pimped rides:



    And me in said pimped ride, in uniform no less:




    A shot from the office... the mountain is Pirongia, just a short flight South West of Hamilton Airport - I intend to walk up it at some point - it gets quite tricky at the end apparently:




    And short final coming into runway 18... Normally we land on the grass strip to the right of it, but it's nice when you get to land on the huuuuuuge tarmac strip! Notice the affectionately named "nipple mountain" in the distance - no idea what its real name is.




    Anyway, just thought you guys might be interested in seeing some pics about what i'm up to - so there you go!


    edit - oh, and I forgot this shot of where I am living... Looks very different from the air! There's actually a little game of garden cricket going on infront of the nearest block...

    I wasn't expecting to see that

    Looks awesome, it would be great to get a few photos up from a solo nav

    Cheater....

    Besides, It's a DA-20 C1 Katana to be precise


    brett - aye, that's what i keep telling them. Need to trim my mullet before I can just go ahead and skip all the stages of training though...


    skipz - well... it has three wheels.... what's a wheel between friends?


    Like I said, hope to get some great scenic shots when I start doing solo nav's, but that's a way off yet. Hopefully a trip will see me going down into the South Island at some point.... that'd be nice!

    These shots are nothing - Did a low pass over Ragland Bay which is about 5-10 minutes flying west of that mountain in the pic above. Alas I was too busy flying (and avoiding the crazy top dressers - crop dusters before anyone gets excited) to take pics but it was gorgeous. I'll try and get some pics of that at some point too... But even ragland bay is nothing compared to some of the scenic shots i've seen of the south island!

    Beautiful country here... that's for sure.
