Ready for duty.

Three Helipro Aviation Training Robinson R22 Beta helicopters nicely lined up and ready to go at Christchurch.
The middle Robbbie is the "new" ZK-HDT5 (c/n 1626) which was re-registered to Helipro on 14-06-2012. This started its career in the US as N4053G followed by a term as VH-LKL from February of 1991 until moving to NZ in October of 1993 for Airflite South who registered it as ZK-HCS3 on 22-10-1993 for Cedar Safaris of Queenstown. Some five operators later its registration was revoked by NZCAA on 12-04-2010.
The far away machine is ZK-HDF3 (c/n 1497) which had originally been ZK-HOD3.
The closest is ZK-HGQ4 (c/n 1438) out of Peru and previously listed as ZK-HYT3 and ZK-IIZ.
So I guess you could say that there is a bit of history lined up here !
