Helicopters at the old Kaikoura Railway Station.

I passed through Kaikoura twice in the last three weeks and captured three of Kaikoura Helicopters machines on site. When not on site they are hangared just out the northern end of town.

Below is Robinson R44 Clipper 11 ZK-HLE2, c/n 10466, in landing mode on 23-02-2010. It was acquired new via Skysales Aviation in October of 2004.

Above is Robinson R44 Raven 11 ZK-HLD5 c/n 11972, as seen on 07-02-2010. Also purchased new via Skysales in July of 2008.
Above is the old timer of their fleet. The Bell 206B JetRanger 11 ZK-HBO2 c/n 570. This was listed to Kaikoura Helicopters on 21-05-2002; prior to this it had been on lease from James Scott.

They have recently acquired the Robinson R44 Raven 11 ZK-HLM2 c/n 12466 (which has been a stock helicopter with Skysales) and their Robinson R22 Beta ZK-HKK3 c/n 4134 which they picked up on 22-09-2008 has been traded back to Skysales and was re-registered as ZK-HQZ2 on 10-02-2010.
