Robinson R22 Beta c/n 1789 came to NZ from Japan where it had been listed as JA7853.
It became ZK-HEH3 on 05-11-02 with James Scott at Fox Glacier. It was quickly moved on to Precision Helicopters of Hokitika from 17-02-2003 and then relisted to West Coast Heliwork Ltd on 26-06-2003.
On 05-02-2008 it transferred to Amuri Helicopters of Hanmer Springs and is shown above at the Rangiora base on 14-05-08. It carried a very small note stuck on the side of the port door advising that it was operated by "Amuri Helicopters".
This registration was cancelled on 04-09-2008 and it became ZK-IWK with the same operater.
