Book a Helicopter Hog Hunt with VERTEX

So, you want to book a Helicopter Hog hunt, eh?

We've done our best to simplify this process as much as possible, as there are a number of people who take a look at our information and want to book the next available hunt, and there are also people who are here just looking around for some basic information. Either way, this should simplify the process for you!

Please note: All hunts are booked on a first come-first served basis. All hunts require a minimum 2-hour booking based at $750 per person, per flight hour for the R-44 (R44 requires two gunners at $750/hr per person totalling $1,500 per aircraft hour).

We normally fly our hunts in one-hour blocks, in order to keep the aircraft light, and to keep the rotations active for the hunts. There is a seat limit on the R44 of 290 lbs.  This is something that we can't control, it is an FAA requirement for the types of aircraft we fly, so you may have to cut some calories before the hunt if this applies to you!!
