Helicopters around Auckland

A visit to Heletranz's Albany heliport today revealed no less than 14 helicopters in residence, some being readied for the start of the America's Cup racing tomorrow.   Amongst these was EC130B-4 ZK-IGW,  which Heletranz reregistered from ZK-HLG in February 2021.

Registered to a Christchurch owner in September 2020 was the brand new Guimbal G2 Cabri ZK-HNN4


Heletranz/Inflite are contracted to operate 2 AS350BA for filming the America's Cup racing being ZK-IEQ as below, and ZK-HFZ.

Now carrying Heletranz titling is AS355F-1 ZK-IAV which was reregistered from ZK-IGO in October 2019.

Meantime over at Ardmore outside Airbus Helicopters was the new BK117D-3 ZK-ITF4 which is now labelled "Experimental".   Its tail scripting reveals it to be an "AC145" model which is a luxury version designed for Super Yacht usage.
