SPECIAL MARKINGS & CALLSIGNS

The detailed requirements for aircraft registrations in NZ are in: http://www.caa.govt.nz/assets/legacy/Advisory_Circulars/AC047_1.pdf

Several aircraft in NZ, mainly but not exclusively war-birds and replicas, have individual exemptions to operate in special paint schemes without displaying their registration letters.

Some also have exemptions to use personalised radio callsigns, usually related to these paint schemes. These are listed on: http://www.caa.govt.nz/script/call-signs/ and have been included in the listing below

The following list has been compiled from reported observations and photographs published on the internet. This is presented on a "work in progress" basis. It has no official status and no guarantees can be given as to its accuracy, currency and completeness. Some aircraft are subject to periodic repainting into different marks. Additions and amendments always welcome.
