Our Helicopter

HeliBacon’s Robinson R44 Raven II provides excellent reliability, tight responsive handling, and great altitude performance, making our chopper of choice perfectly suited for tearing up the Texas skies and putting lead on target.

Our R44 seats up to 4 occupants and provides passenger a nearly unobstructed view due to the cascading windows open design. HeliBacon chooses to fly the R44 because it was designed with the crew in mind. The low tail-rotor tip speed, a very capable muffler system, and the large cambered tail section decrease flight noise and yield a flight experience that allows for much needed passage to pilot communication when the heat is on and the pigs are moving.

Come to Texas and let us give you the ride of your life!
