A Summer EC120B Flight

This job began by arranging the EC120B to be shipped from Brisbane, Australia to Auckland, New Zealand.

After sitting on a boat for that long, this bird needed to stretch its wings! And so she did, with a beautiful flight from Auckland Port to Queenstown.

Michelle from our Operations team managed to score a seat on the flight down – getting to enjoy the stunning views along the way.

It was a great project to work on and one that many will appreciate with this EC120B being used for tourist flights within the Queenstown region this summer!

A bit about the EC120B

The EC120B Colibri is a single-engine multimission helicopter, designed for safe, simple, and cost-effective operations.

It incorporates several of Eurocopter's trademarked technologies, those of prominence are the 3-bladed Speriflex main rotor head and the 8-bladed fenestron anti-torque tail rotor; these have been partially credited with contributing to the rotorcraft's noise signature, which is 6.7 decibels below International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) limits.
