Pretty little thing...
Ok, maybe not so little, but our new Airvan GA8 sure is pretty. 😍😍😍
Purchased back in November 2021, our new Airvan, YUA, was delayed a bit in arrival, as collecting her from New Zealand during COVID lockdowns was... difficult. But like all good things, she was worth the wait.
YUA, touched down in Perth in late February 2022, with a temporary visa, different name and look.
Since then YUA has gone through registration in Australia and a paint job, so not only does she have a new name, but a new look. While Red might be a bold and bright colour that's lucky for many, I think Blue is more YUA's colour. We managed to have YUA ready just in time for Easter 2022, and she's been an invaluable member of the team since - not really surprising. #girlpower
For those wondering why we went with the name YUA, there are 2 very important reasons:
There wasn't a lot of options on the Australian register available. It's slim picking out there.
I needed to have something I could use in puns... be warned the puns used whenever YUA is on social media will be irritating and excessively used.
It's just a shame you can't use question marks in #hashtags But I want you to imagine the above with a thick Australian accent.
Our girl is looking great, working hard and has a talent for scenic flights #YUAgreat!
The start of more exciting things to come in 2022!
