Taken at Rukuhia, 20 January,1993. A member of the RNZAF 'Red Checkers' display team on static display. These aircraft currently serve as the RNZAF's ab-initio trainers. A look inside the cockpit. Although I have sat in one of these aircraft before, I haven't been airborne - I have tried out its smaller cousin, the AESL Airtourer, while I was an ATC cadet at Wigram in the early 1980's.
