At 1.00pm today, a NZ Customs officer, the Shipping Agent, the MPI representative and I quietly gathered around a solitary yellow container in the huge Freight Haulage compound. We were present to witness the Freight Haulage staff member dealing to the security seal with bolt-cutters and opening the container doors.
Yippee! It's here - the first SKYLEADER GP One light sport aircraft to come to the southern hemisphere. As the first-of-type in NZ, it will be our SkyFreedom Aviation demo aircraft. Hopefully this will be followed by many other GP One LSA/Microlights for Kiwi owners.
I'll be back on Monday to unload the container and shift the GP One to a storage area for assembly and all its pre-inspection checks..
