A couple of newbies spied at Ardmore 11 November.
First up is New Zealand's third Eurocopter EC130 T2 series registered ZK-IVJ to Advanced Flight who have their base at Pikes Point, just on the northern fringe of the Auckland Tower control zone. It wears construction number 7901 and was placed on the ZK register 31 October.
Secondly is a recent import from Australia for Whakatane's Frontier Helicopters. Robinson R44 Clipper II ZK-IID has most recently been flying across the Tasman as VH-HLP and popped up on the Kiwi register the day prior to this photo being taken.
