    New Helo Operator, Hill Country Helo no longer.

    News out today.

    It seems there is a new Heli operator in the CNI.

    A new company "Mid West Helicopters NZ LTD" has been formed and has purchased the company "Hill Country Helicopters 1986 LTD".
    The Hill Country pilots Nick Tallott and Scott Russell will stay and continue with Mid West. Also joining them to fly from Taihape will be Ian Pullen.
    Contact phone numbers will remain the same. Mark Taliyard has left the company and is going through the motions to do his own thing.

    The interesting part is the make up of Mid West Heli.
    It seems they all are pilots for ravensdown, aeroworks.

    Sad to see the end of what was a very good family business which was well respected in all part of the industry and community.
    The remaining family are happy with the new operators and have their full support.
    Havent heard if and when new livery or advertising of the new company will start but there ya go.
