Eurocopter EC130 T2 ZK-IEC

Recently imported Eurocopter EC130 T2 ZK-IEC/3 registered to Endurance Fishing of Nelson on 23 July was spied at Greymouth 02 September under stunning blue West Coast skies.

This is the first T2 variant of the popular EC130.  NZ currently has 12 B4 models registered.
The T2 features an upgraded air frame, new power plant and active anti vibration systems for a smoother ride.

A second T2, ZK-HTI, was registered to Tari-iti No 1 Ltd on 27 August.  This helicopter will no doubt work alongside Pilatus PC12 ZK-TIL in conjunction with the yet to be completed Tari-Iti Golf Course near Wellsford.
