Rick Lucas Helicopters (Helipro) of Palmerston North became the listed owners from 14-03-08.
This pic shows ZK-HYT3 at Heli-Maintenance, Christchurch on 28-11-07 - before becoming officially registered.
Earlier - 01-03-2007 to be precise - Rick Lucus registered a Kawasaki BK117 B-1 , c/n 1030 , as ZK-HGQ3 , ex JA9941.Pic above shows the BK117 B-1 JA9941 coming together to be ZK-HGQ3 at Palmerston North on 11-02-07.
Whats all this leading up to ?
For reasons unknown to me, Rick wanted the BK117 registerd as ZK-HYT and the Robinson to be ZK-HGQ. To do this the Robinson was re-registered as ZK-IIZ on 13-05-08 very briefly, thusly freeing up the ZK-HYT marks, then the BK117 took up these vacated marks;. Once that was done the Robinson then moved to take up the freed up ZK-HGQ marks.
