Hamilton and onto Ardmore

A surprise at Hamilton Airport this morning was the PAC 750XL /  Falco 3000XL ZK-KEO in a new paint scheme and wearing "Independent Airspread" titling.     Christened "Karearea"  (Maori name for the NZ Falcon)  this was acquired by Murray Hargreaves Ltd, Maungaturoto back in November 2021.

Up at Ardmore on the CG Aviation ramp was the SA330J Puma N815AR being one of 2 imported into Gisborne back in May 2020 for heli logging work.   Its companion,  N814AR,  has been sharing a hangar at Mercer airfield with the RocketLab Sikorsky S92A ZK-HEV for some months now.

Inside CG Aviation's hangar requiring maintenance was the RNZ Navy Kaman SH2G Seasprite NZ3613.

And outside Heliflite was the wingless former Greymouth based Cessna P210N Centurion ZK-VIR.  This was imported from the US back in 2009 and sold to Motueka based Argus Aviation in December 2021.
