WASSI purchased ZK-MAJ from the Canterbury Aero Club in May 2021. It was then fitted with one of the two engines WASSI purchased direct from Lycoming in Pennsylvania. These were ordered and paid for as “Overhauled” engines however, due to circumstances these two engines were constructed and delivered as zero time “Factory Rebuilt” engines. These engines are like new. They have a zero time since new and a zero time since major overhaul

In October 2022 MAJ had its initial avionics upgrade of a Garmin GTX335W ADS/B Out and In Transponder and a Garmin Aero 660 VFR GPS Navigator display.

MAJ still requires a complete paint strip and repaint in the WASSI scheme, but both time and financial constraints did not allow this to be achieved in 2022. It is hoped to be able to complete MAJ’s repaint and other restoration aspects, such as the remaining avionics upgrade and internal refurbishment in the latter part of 2024.

MAJ is currently being leased by Mid-Canterbury Aeroclub.
