This 2008 R44 Raven II received a full 2200 hour overhaul in September of 2020 when it only has 1205 hours!  This helicopter is fresh out of overhaul and has, like new, approx. 2200 hours or 12 years until the next major overhaul.  Warranty is available on all parts that were replaced in the overhaul and will last for 1 year or 1000 hours, whichever comes first.

This helicopter is in great condition and comes with many extras that the next pilot will appreciate.  Air Conditioning is a great feature for those hot summer days and also helps with resale value.  This is a smooth flying machine and the next owner is going to receive a lot of value for the price.

Also available with this helicopter is 2 Cargo Pods that are mounted externally.  This helicopter comes equipped with a Tannis heater and winter covers that have barely been used.

This helicopter, if it were purchased new with the same options would be over $560,000 USD.  It will sell for over 140,000 USD less than new and come with the same amount of usable hours and years until the next major overhaul is due.

The overhaul was completed by the highly experienced and reputable Genesis Helicopter Services Inc.  They do more overhauls in Canada than anyone else we know of.  The R44’s that we have received from Genesis are always high quality with excellent customer service.  During the overhaul, all the AD’s and SB’s were brought up to date.

International buyers can note that this helicopter’s registration marks are decals and easily changed.  It also has ADS-B out for all Class C airspace that requires it in the USA.
