The East Coast arena of the North Island of New Zealand is affluent in its aerodynamics history. The aboriginal airline to be licenced and to accomplish accompanying engine aircraft was Gisborne based, we housed assorted RNZAF Squadrons during WWII, and were antecedents in the topdressing industry. We are aswell one of two airports in the apple to accept a railway band active beyond our runway.
Gisborne's bounded absorption had in aspect affected the East Coast to be antecedents in the aerodynamics industry, with a ample accent on the aeriform appliance of fertilizer.
It is our amusement to be complex with recording the history of the aircraft, and the personalities of the aerodynamics industry of the Gisborne / East Coast region, as able-bodied as attention the aircraft that appeared in our skies in the advantageous canicule of aviation.
Our museum, which opened in 1998, has exhibits alignment from the alpha of aerodynamics history on the East Coast in 1920 up to the mid 1980's and has 5 aircraft on display. These can be beheld in the exhibits area of the site. It is credible to any aircraft enthusiast with admission to the "Internet" that this average is a abundant benefaction to Museums and Apology Groups anticipation from the amount who advance a home page. It should be just as benign to abate groups like G.A.P.S. who are almost new on the arena and accept not yet congenital up a arrangement of contacts. For our apology accomplishment to be maximised we charge added like absent humans to be acquainted of our attendance so that we are all able to action anniversary added alternate support. A "home page" for GAPS offers an able way of absolution our attendance be known. The adeptness to apace acquaint with accomplished humans anywhere in the world, to affirm methods and procedures and to clue down sources of locations and information, will serve to accelerate some of the abounding problems which face such groups as ours if the capital plan of apology gets beneath way. Aswell there are assuredly lots of "couch potatoes" out there who would like to apperceive about us and our aims and who could apparently be abiding to become associates and / or acquirement our promotional items, now that the agency is available.
At present the website is getting aggregate by G.A.P.S, CADstuff and Thompson-Aero and is getting hosted by Bryce Parker Consultants. The GAPS basic of the "site" currently consists of 13 abstracted pages. It may able-bodied be that a few humans may affliction to alone sponsor a page. Such contributions would go a continued way appear accoutrement the operating amount of the G.A.P.S. basic and would be acutely accustomed on the sponsored web page.Read More»
