As of the 21st July 2017, Hill Country Helicopters (1986) Ltd has been sold to Mid-West Helicopters Ltd. Many of you will be familiar with the pilots from MWH, which include Dean Lithgow, Peter Larsen, Steve Ashcroft, Owen Harvey, and Dave McLaughlin.
Joining them from HCH will be Nick Tallott and Scott Russell .
Also Shannon Carr who will be assisting MWH during the transition period, and will take on a Safety Officer role in the new company.
Operations will continue under HCH for the transition period however the new team will service all clients.
