The owners of Andrews Special ZK-BLU are reluctantly offering this historic little aircraft for sale. Presently New Zealand’s oldest airworthy homebuilt, the Andrews is a one off design and unique worldwide.
Cliff Andrews, an ex-RNZAF Mosquito pilot, designed and built the aircraft in Wellington in the mid-1950’s. His design also incorporated components from several aircraft types that were common at the time - Aeronca, Auster, Harvard and Tiger Moth.
For nearly forty years, the Andrews has been in syndicate ownership and this is where the aircraft comes into its own. Reliable and cheap to maintain and fly, it has been an ‘hour builder’ for many, many owners. It comfortably seats pilots over six feet tall and this comfort and an 80-85 knot cruise speed makes it a pleasant and fun cross country machine. The Andrews is a beautiful aeroplane to fly. It is light and responsive and very stable. With its high lift wing, and 85hp it performs very well in and out of smaller airstrips.

Personally, I celebrated my 100th flying hour in ZK-BLU and 10 000 hours later, I look back on my time in the Andrews with great satisfaction. Every flight taught me something new and now after a career of airline flying, I look forward to flying the Andrews just to remind me how much fun flying can be.

A test flight can be organised.
