Crossing the North Island on 15.5 Ltrs/Hour


Tuesday 22nd May dawned bright and sunny, just right for a sales and demo flight from our base at Kaipara Flats to Taupo. Airborne at 08:30 and a silky smooth flight in the cold morning air. Arrived 1hr 35mins after takeoff and was welcomed with a nice mug of hot coffee. The rest of the day was spent flying demonstration missions ranging from CFI to PPL trainee and of course the Boss. The aircraft performed impeccably and at days end I had used a total of 62Ltrs of fuel which makes an average fuel burn of 15.5Ltrs/hour for the days flying…..unbeatable!
