The Mainland Touch was on hand at Ardmore this morning with Dunedin based training school Mainland Air represented by Cessna 152's ZK-NSA and ZK-NSZ. Both aircraft departed Ardmore for Thames. The north was also graced with Mainland's Piper PA31-350 today, ZK-KVW. It spent a time on the ground at Auckland arriving from and returning to Dunedin with a flight time southbound of 3hr 40mins! Long haul!
