Presumably they were properly surveyed before they were bought?

The Scillies shuttle has enough to contend with thanks to the weather down there without serviceability problems making it worse.
Not sure about the second airframe, but the first one was brought in from Eagle Copters in Calgary, AB. after undergoing a thorough return to service program. That being said, one is curious if/who Starspeed sent to YYC to survey and fly the a/c prior to signing off on it. Would love to know what, exactly, the issue was that grounded the a/c for so long.

That sounds like an aircraft that has sat in a hangar for some while - never a good thing for a helicopter.
