HeliBacon’s Helicopter

HeliBacon’s Robinson 66 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. HeliBacon’s R66 is also a 2013 year model aircraft, meaning we are powered by a Rolls Royce RR300 Turbine engine and operate the newest turbine helicopter in the helicopter hog hunting industry. 

Our R66 seats up to 4-5 occupants and provides passengers a nearly unobstructed view due to the cascading windows open design. HeliBacon chooses to fly the R66 because it was designed with the crew in mind. 

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