Off topic so I apologize. But can someone shed light on how accessible the Ultimate Heliport is to view choppers to an ordinary chopperspotter with no accreditation?

IF I am not mistaken both of these are Aérospatiale Alouette III
However one is registered ZS and the other ZU -- WHAT is the difference ?

Golftango here on Avcom knows its history. Apparently the only TC allo in the world, as a result of import from the US - if I remember correctly.

Far from the only civilian Allo3, many where supplied to civilians all around the world.

RNV is also an ex SAAF airframe, just had the engine and gearboxes overhauled by the manufacturer to bring it to civilian spec, which allowed it to be certified whereas REC is still original military spec so has to remain ZU (uncertified)
