VERTEX Tactical Aviation - Book Your Helicopter Hog Hunt Today!

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!!

Helicopter Hog Hunting Fees Schedule:
(Effective Jan 1st, 2013)

Aerial Hunting Safety Course: $350 per person.
(Each gunner MUST attend the Aerial Hunter Safety Course prior to performing as a gunner. Click here for information on the Aerial Hunting Safety Course.)

Hourly Hunt Rate:

R-44: $750 per flight hour, per person ($1,500 per hour combined rate) with a 3-aircraft-hour minimum booking.
(Based on Aircraft Hobbs Meter. This can be broken down into mutliple one-hour hunts for a group of gunners if preferred, so long as there is a minimum of three "aircraft hobbs hours". Most gunners purchase 2 hours per person for groups of 3 or more to get the most effective hunting experience. Weight limit is 290 lbs. Must have two gunners per flight. If only one gunner, full hourly rate of $1,500 will apply.)

Ammunition Fee: $95 per 100/rds*
(We provide the ammunition in order to ensure functional operation of our weapons. No gunner supplied ammunition unless approved for test and evaluation purposes and only with prior approval from VERTEX management.)

Hero Video: $75
All of the VERTEX Helicopter hunts are recorded using multiple HD video cameras. Videos of the hunts are available for each gunner at a cost of $75 each. The video is approximately 5 minutes in length, and will highlight each gunner's experience during the hunt.
