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.
