Are these available in Oz?


Recommended Posts

Did you know there's one rotting in a public park in Thailand?

 

In fact isn't it in your city of Chiang Mai?

 

Tell me more.  I haven't heard about it.  How did you find out about it?

Thanks bexrbetter,  I do remember seeing that when I visited Loei about seven years ago.  Loei is about 500 kms from me.

 

The Wren was manufactured by another company.  The Wren is what Todd Peterson used to design his canard wing for his Katmai and Kenai models.

 

and thanks onetrack,  good to know that there are a couple in Oz already,  I'm assuming that would make the paperwork easier if another one were to be brought from the US of A.

Thanks Student Pilot.

 

I think that the Wren is no longer manufactured.  But in any case,  I am interested in the Kenai (and the Katmai) which are still being modified from N, P and Q model Cessna 182's by Peterson Performance Plus.

Well,  just to bump this old thread,  I have just returned from a road trip to Loei where the above plane is situated.  I hadn't been there for about eight years.  The public park turned out to be a bit of a war memorial and strangely (for Thailand) there was a bit of activity going on in regards to maintenance.  Here are some pics from just the other day.  Also,  for those interested,  they also had another war plane in the park,  I believe that it may be a Trojan.
