CEO / Co-Founder
As a lifelong enthusiast of firearms, helicopters, and a NRA certified Chief Range Safety Officer, Chris Britt aligned with who he describes as “two guys with a ton of skill and talent” 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 partners John and Chase are top notch. This is one of those dream businesses where you can really love your work. Let’s go fly!”
Weapons Specialist/ Chief Pilot/ Co-Founder
In October of 2012, Chase saw the unique opportunity to partner with John and Chris and ensure he could do something he loved for the rest of his life. Infatuated 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 it’s 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, can be a pain in the butt, but I love it.” He’s the man who builds the guns, preps the ammo, cleans the guns, fixes the guns, and even leads excursions as a licensed helicopter pilot. HeliBacon’s workhorse, Chase is also a walking encyclopedia of virtually every bit of firearm and helicopter information.
Ground Crew & Field Ops
Brandon started with HeliBacon in late 2016, and is having a blast! He’s been a gun enthusiast since he was a small child, shooting his first gun (a Remington 870) when he was 10 years old. Since he was about six years old 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 since high school, for about a decade. All of this training and these skills led him to a position in the oil refinery business during the economic downfall, prior to joining HeliBacon. His fondest memories to look back on, though, are with co-founder and weapons specialist, Chase Roberts, back in the days of high school; street and drag racing. Brandon, 26 y/o, has a loving girlfriend (Lauren) of nearly 3 years as well as a daughter (Bristol) going on 2 years old. 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!!”
John Dumont has always been a self-starter, running his first business at the age of 20 before realizing his true passion was helicopters. Being a self-employed helicopter pilot is his embodiment of total freedom. Originally from California, John was drawn to Texas by the helicopter industry. Once here, his certifications as a rotorcraft CFI/CFII made him the perfect fit as the Chief Pilot in the HeliBacon trifecta. John is intimately knowledgeable with HeliBacon’s R44 Raven II and no one takes more pride in any aircraft than John. “There is no greater feeling in life than flying through the open air in an aircraft that you are so in touch with – you feel like it is an extension of your body”. If you’re looking for the time of life and you want someone you can trust – John is the perfect pilot for you.
