Europa Customer Profile - Tim Ward

Tim Ward is a Boeing 767-300 Captain with Air New Zealand with 16,000 hours of flying experience. He entered the Europa community in 1996, having been impressed by a demonstration of Europa’s short take-off and landing capabilities, as well as its ease of build. He opted for the mono wheel ‘classic’ model of Europa, preferring its aesthetics to the XS model, and has enjoyed around 200 hours flight time in the aircraft.

Tim says, “I thoroughly enjoyed the build; easy manual to work with and a fabulous builders website for help.”

Tim now enjoys flying his Europa around New Zealand, and says he finds it “Smooth to handle and good stall characteristics, easy to store away. The designers and engineers should be very proud of what they have created.”

He is currently hoping to organise an annual event for Europa enthusiasts in New Zealand,
