Helicopters in the Waikato

Tripping around the Waikato uncovered a number of helicopters that havent featured on this blog before starting with Bell 206B ZK-HLG5 which was imported by Rotor Flite NZ this year from Japan and assembled by Rotorcraft at Hamilton Airport.

Down at the Rotor Work maintenance base at Kihikihi was Bell 206B sprayer ZK-HWR3 which was imported from Japan back in 2004, and has been with the company since 2012.

Further down the road at another Rotor Work base at Kopaki was Hughes 269C ZK-HOO2 which was imported from the US in 1993, and has been with the company since 1995.

Receiving attention at Argus Aviation at Taupo was Mid West Helicopters MD500N ZK-HZG3 which was imported from Australia in 2008, and has been with the company since 2018.

And lastly on the Rotor & Wing ramp at Taupo was the Robinson R66 ZK-IXT which was imported new in 2014 and acquired by its current owner, SCN Helicopters of Porirua, in May 2021.
