Some helicopters at Ardmore 20 October

Completely refurbished by Heliflite at Ardmore was Volta Aviation's 2nd Sikorsky S-76C ZK-IBI2.  Imported from Malaysia where it was operated on offshore rig support work it received its NZ CofA yesterday and carried out its 1st charter flight this afternoon to the Coromandel.

Also completely refurbished is MD520N ZK-IEK, initially by Oceania Aviation at Ardmore and then 369 Ltd at Mt Maunganui.   Now for sale it was originally imported from Denmark in 2014 as ZK-IDB2, becoming IEK in 2015 and more recently operated by Southland Helicopters.

Being prepared for export to the USA is Advanced Flight's Bell 429 ZK-IXW2 which has been reserved as N52HX with the FAA.   It was originally imported from Canada back in 2011.
