Our imported helicopter has passed all its inspections and has been declared safe and airworthy on the South African register. She is no longer 5H-XSH and is now ZS-HPU! Another big step! Fantastic!
All this required a lot of help – first from Van Zyl Aviation who were our consultants for the helicopter import and also from NAC’s helicopter engineering division at Rand Airport near Johannesburg. NAC at Rand completed all the work to get the helicopter safe and airworthy on the South African CAA’s register.
We did not change the livery colours much because it would have cost more than we thought it was worth – being safe was more important!
