Zeeland Air, based on Midden Zeeland airfield in the Netherlands, provides business charters. In 1990 it
bought the PH-TVA wich is still mainly used for business charters. The plane has been in the Transavia
Holland fleet from 1973 till 1976. This model of Dee Waldron is designed as an AI-model and not 100%.
However the flight dynamics are perfect, thanks to David Carter.
The Tomahawk is a single-engined low-wing cantilever monoplane with a T-tail and an enclosed cabin for two. It has a fixed tricycle landing gear and is powered by a Lycoming O-
235 four-cylinder piston engine with a twin-bladed tractor propeller. The Tomahawk has two front-hinged doors for access to the cabin.The Tomahawk was Piper's attempt at
creating an affordable two-place trainer. Before designing the aircraft, Piper widely surveyed flight instructors for their input into the design. Instructors requested a more spinnable
aircraft for training purposes, since other two-place trainers such as the Cessna 150 and 152 were designed to spontaneously fly out of a spin.
The Tomahawk's NASA GA(W)-1 Whitcomb airfoil addresses this requirement by making specific pilot input necessary in recovering from spins, thus allowing pilots to develop
proficiency in dealing with spin recovery. The Tomahawk was introduced in 1977 as a 1978 model. The aircraft was in continuous production until 1982 when production was
completed, with 2,484 aircraft built. The 1981 and 1982 models were designated as the Tomahawk II. They incorporated improved cabin heating and windshield defroster
performance, an improved elevator trim system, improved engine thrust vector, 100% airframe zinc-chromate anti-corrosion treatment, better cockpit soundproofing, larger 6"
wheels and tires for greater propeller ground clearance and improved performance on grass and dirt runways, among other enhancements.
The PH-TMH flew from July 1979 till April 2003 with the Rotterdam Aero Club.A few years it was privately owned and from 2011 till 2016 in the fleet of A.I.S. Flight Academy on
Lelystad Airport. Today it is again privately owned. This pack includes the livery of A.I.S. Flight Academy as well.
