CEO / Co-Founder
As a lifelong enthusiast of firearms, helicopters, and a NRA certified Chief Range Safety Officer, Chris Britt aligned with Chase Roberts in early October of 2012 to start HeliBacon. Here was a chance to bring to fruition a marriage between several of his favorite things while providing an economically beneficial and environmentally conscious service. As an entrepreneur, having run and owned several businesses in the Houston area, Chris’ primary responsibilities to HeliBacon are ‘behind the scenes’ aspects of the business: marketing, back office, accounting, PR, finances etc… What Chris loves most about HeliBacon: “It’s so much ‘cool’ in one package. It’s an educational and entertaining adventure featuring machine guns and helicopters, while still being truly beneficial to the economy and environment. What we do is important. Our clients are awesome people, we have great relationships with our landowners, and my business partner Chase is top notch. This is one of those dream businesses where you can really love your work. Let’s go fly!”
Co-Founder/ Chief Pilot/ Firearm Specialist
In October of 2012, Chase recognized he had a unique opportunity to partner with Chris and ensure he could do something he loved for the rest of his life. Fascinated with firearms and a fanatical about aviation, Chase was born for the role he fills at HeliBacon. As a Co-Founder, Chase’s roles touch just about every aspect of the business – if it’s outside the office Chase gets it done. “Most people never get to experience or have the opportunity to see a firearm go from conception, through to the end of its life, but here they’re being used so much that it’s a lot of what I like most about my job. When things break or we need a new gun for the arsenal, I’m tasked with the challenge. I grew up a problem solver. Sometimes, it can be a pain in the butt, but I love it.” Chase has been flying helicopters since 2010 and is walking encyclopedia of virtually every bit of firearm and helicopter information. He is expertly trained in low-level flying and is highly experienced in the art of helicopter hog hunting. Chase’s skill behind the flight controls, his absolutely steady hands, and unshakable focus make clients feel like the aircraft is a natural extension of his body. He’s the man who builds the guns, fixes the guns, and pilots the excursions. He is HeliBacon’s workhorse.
Ground Crew & Field Ops
Brandon has been a firearm enthusiast since he was a small child, shooting his first gun (a Remington 870) when he was 10 years old. Since childhood, he’s been working as a self taught automotive mechanic with the guidance of his father. On top of that he’s been perfecting his skills as a precision welder, for about a decade. All of his training, skills and experience were put to good use in the petroleum refinery business, prior to joining HeliBacon. His fondest memories to look back on, though, are with co-founder and pilot, Chase Roberts, back in the days of high school; street and drag racing. Brandon, 27 y/o, has a loving wife Lauren as well as a beautiful daughter Bristol. After being recruited by HeliBacon from the oil and gas industry, Brandon couldn’t be happier. Proud to aid in the feral hog depredation program and the growth of HeliBacon, Brandon says – “I’m a lifer!!”
