More Christchurch Helicopters today 17-09-2008

Having completed a season of heli skiing, I believe based at Mount Cook, is the AS350D AStar ZK-HYW2 , c/n 1420. A late 1981 production helicopter which joined Rick Lucas Helicopters on 17-02-1995. Resting up at Helipro today.
Bell 206B JetRanger II ZK-HTX , c/n 1616 started work in the Orient in February 1975, returning to the States in 1981 and imported into ZK land and listed with Farm Helicopters at Ardmore on 27-06-1984. It is a resonably recent arrival down Canterbury way, being registered to Rural Helicopters (Canterbury) Ltd of Harwarden on 11-03-2008. Here it is at Helipro today.

ZK-HFJ3 c/n LN027 is one of three NOTAR's on the field at the moment.
It is a 1992 model and has spent time, following export from the US, in Denmark and Belgium before returning to the US. It came onto the NZ register on 15-02-05 with Oceania and went to Alpine Hunting Adventures at Franz Josef (Hence HFJ). Seen today at Heli-Maintenance.

Across the fences at Skysales was the Hughes 369E ZK-INO. See blog below.
