Dashing Times

Air New Zealand has recently introduced the Bombardier Q300 operated by Air Nelson on four flights per week between Christchurch and Hokitika to fill the gap left by the grounding of Air National who provided services on behalf of Eagle Air between the two centres and to cater for the growing demand for air travel to and from the West Coast.  ZK-NEQ operated the scheduled service today, 27 April. 
Finals for 04 at Hokitika from the residential part of town.

And the airport is so close to town you can get there quickly enough to get it taxiing in!

Anderson Helicopters have been a part of the Hokitika Airport scene for a number of years now with the principal owner having flown fixed wing top dressing activity over the years and then branched into rotary operations.  The family company has operated Bell 206 ZK-HSG for many years and in 2002 put Squirrel ZK-HKA into service.
