Microlight Aircraft – NZ to UK

Road Haulage

In April 2019, HFS completed the import of a light aircraft that had flown from the UK to New Zealand in 2018 to mark the 100th anniversary of the RAF. The 17,000-mile expedition – led by RAF Wing Commander Christopher Pote – saw the Eurofox LSA Microlight aircraft stop at 27 different locations, 25 of which had significant RAF connections.

Following the plane’s arrival in New Zealand in December 2018, Wing Cmdr. Pote contacted our New Zealand partner agent Jenners to arrange its shipment back to the UK. Our NZ operation, HGL, liaised with Jenners initially, with our UK team then overseeing the aircraft’s safe delivery to a small airfield near Maidstone, Kent.

‘This was an unusual shipment in that the cargo was returning to the UK via a different mode of transport to which it first left. However, it was good to know we played a small part in a project marking the centenary of the RAF.‘
