The last of the batch of six Rallye Club aircraft imported by Seabrook Fowlds in 1962 was c/n 5230 which became ZK-CCS on 8.10.1962. Initially, this Rallye went to the Rotorua Aero Club, being delivered on 11.12.1962

Substantially damaged 21.6.1964 when crashed at Rotorua, Rotokawa, North Island, NZ: pilot T Warren. Repaired and returned to service: A few years later, the Rallye moved to the Tokoroa Aero Club (by 4.3.1967)

From early 1970, the Pegasus School of Aviation based at Tauranga operated this Rallye, and the final owner was A E Boyd of Thames from 23.5.1972.

Unfortunately, ZK-CCS hit power cables near Hanmer 26.2.73 and was destroyed. The registration was not cancelled until much later - 5.12.1988.
