Helicopter Review

During the last couple of weeks I've taken the opportunity to enjoy the autumn sunshine and caught up with the following around the traps:

Agusta A109 Grand ZK-HBH arrives at Ardmore.Operated by Heletranz and wearing "Helena Bay" titles,  it has received a revised registration format since I last saw it and now displays HBH in lieu of just "BH". 

Robinson R22 ZK-HFB is listed with Heliflite of Ardmore. 
Robinson R44 ZK-HGM is seen departing from Paihia on another Salt Air scenic flight. 

Hiller FH-1100 ZK-HHW basking in the sun at North Shore. It is operated by Brendan Leddy of Kumeu who also has Hiller FH-1100 ZK-HXF to his name. 

Ardmore's Helisika operates this Eurocopter AS350B2 ZK-HOP. 

Still registered to Rick Lucas Helicopters of Wellington is this AS350BA ZK-HYW parked outside one of Heliflite's Ardmore hangars (Robinson R44 ZK-HBJ in the background). 

Northland Emergency Services Trust Sikorsky S76 ZK-IAL rests at North Shore outside what was (is?) the Great Barrier/Barrier Air hangar. This machine had until recently operated in an all black livery - plus titles.

Kawasaki BK117 C1 ZK-IMX is a recent arrival from Japan and was registered to importer Oceania Aviation in early April. 
Robinson R44 ZK-IPM is seen here at North Shore having been re-registered from ZK-HCV on 1 July 2015. It is operated by Twin Coast Helicopters of Whangarei. Out of shot to the left is Robinson R22 ZK-ISC and behind it and not photographed is the Bolkow 105 ZK-HCV. It is registered to Far North Helicopters, also of Whangarei, and was re-registered from ZK-IAI in February this year.
