It was reformed with Sea Kings in 1973 and maintains 4 Flights of Sea King Mk43 in the SAR role and a number of single aircraft detatchments. Between 1995 and 1998 a machine was stationed at Vigra (ENAL), near Ålesund. By Dec 2003, A Flt was based at Bodø (ENBO), B Flt at Banak (ENNA), C Flt at Ørland (ENOL, since Aug 1973) and D Flt at Stavangar-Sola (ENZV).
