What are the Benefits of purchasing this helicopter? 

Excellent Options:

This helicopter is loaded with great options.  Air Conditioning is great option when flying in the summer or when considering resale value.  The helicopter is Night VFR Capable.  The Cargo Hook allows it to be a multi-role helicopter.  The new interior is comfortable, stylish and smells like new! ADSB- Out has been installed to meet the new airspace requirements.

A new option that this helicopter has, that proves very handy is the New RHC Air Oil separator.  This drastically reduces the amount of oil that is wasted through the breathing tube.  With over 10 hours flown since overhaul, there has been no drops on the hangar floor or covering the bottom of the helicopter.

Purchase price vs New:

This helicopter, if it were purchased new with the same options would be over $560,000 USD.  It will sell for over 100,000 USD less than new and come with the same amount of usable hours and years until the next major overhaul is due.

Hours and time remaining + Warranty:

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.   The overhaul was completed in March of 2020.

Previous owner:

I can’t describe to you how well the previous owner took care of this helicopter.  The previous owner’s care of this helicopter was like no one else we have seen.  It spent 99% of the non-flying life stored in spotless clean heated hangar.  After every flight the owner would clean the aircraft with a new rag!  I can honestly say I don’t know of a better treated helicopter out there.

Overhaul Shop:

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, this helicopter received a new factory interior.  This includes the tan leather interior, new headliners and charcoal carpet.  The engine is a rebuilt Lycoming factory exchange IO- 540- AE1A5.
