Otago Polytech­nic stu­dents Linda Street and Jonathan Storm sit with the kit­set Vans RV12 aero­plane, ZK OPT, built by bach­e­lor of engi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy and New Zealand di­ploma in engi­neer­ing stu­dents, in Dunedin, this year.

Cost­ing $70,000 from the polytech­nic’s cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture bud­get, the plane had al­ready been sold, a state­ment from Otago Polytech­nic said.

The aero­plane is on dis­play at the Otago Polytech­nic Hub as part of the polytech­nic’s yearend engi­neer­ing show­case.

The show­case cov­ered a wide range of engi­neer­ing dis­ci­plines, the polytech­nic said.
