Aircraft

ZK-HKC AS-350 B3 Squirel

This aircraft is used primarily for precision placement of external or underslung loads.  Being the most powerful aircraft in the AS-350 range, the B3 variant excels in the lifting of heavy and high altitude loads, to date this is the only aircraft type that has been able to successfully land on the summit of Mt Everest.

Our aircraft has had every bit of excess weight removed to enhance its’ ability to carry maximum payload to high altitudes like those found on Mt Ruapehu (the highest mountain in the North Island of New Zealand), where we regularly carry loads in excess of 1,000kgs, at lower levels this aircraft is capable of lifting 1,400kgs.

When required, this aircraft can quickly be configured for carrying passengers, with the option of having one pilot and up to six passengers with the optional dual front seat installed, or with the added safety of two pilots there is seating for up to four passengers.  In both configurations there is still plenty of room for luggage or equipment, which may be required on site.

ZK-HZD AS-350FX2 Squirel

This aircraft is available for any type of job, from passenger transport and the precision placement of external or underslung loads, to aerial filming, winching operations and agricultural work.

The maximum lift capacity of this aircraft is 1,000kgs. This lift capacity is less than that of an AS-350B3, but far exceeds the ability of an AS-350B2, particularly when operating at altitude or in hot climates.  This aircraft has been kept light to allow for maximum payloads to be carried.

When required, this aircraft can quickly be configured for carrying passengers and equipment, with the option of having one pilot and up to six passengers with the optional dual front seat installed, or with the added safety of two pilots there is seating for up to four passengers.  In both configurations there is still plenty of room for luggage or equipment, which may be required for the trip or on site work.

ZK-IHT R66 Turbine

The Robinson R66 has five seats and a separate cargo compartment.

This aircraft is normally configured for carrying passengers and equipment, with the standard fit being one pilot and up to 4 passengers.  This helicopter is easily equipped with our underbelly spray tank and booms or, with the cargo hook, can carry external loads quickly and efficiently.
