I had an opportunity to work with Aerial Recon on the purchase of our used 2009 R44.

We looked at and considered a few ships with them over a 6 month period and then purchased our ship in April 2016.

In our case, Eric handed off the purchase transaction to Luke very early on in the process. I was very impressed with Luke’s attitude and calm demeanor. It was great dealing with Luke and I have developed a strong working relationship with him through the purchase process.

Luke worked with us and the seller to accommodate the pre-purchase inspection and made himself available to assist the Engineer as required. He showed a keen interest in making sure the ship was in great condition, as was advertised on the Aerial Recon website.

Luke met us at the airport in Kelowna in May 2016 when we arrived to pick up the ship, and was very helpful. He helped us sort through the purchase agreement and ensure we had the correct documents going into Transport Canada. The entire purchase experience went very smoothly. There were no surprises and the Aerial Recon team totally eliminated our apprehensions in regards to dealing with Transport Canada and the registration process. The entire experience was less stressful than purchasing a car.

If you’re looking to purchase an R44 either new or used, I would strongly recommend you speak with Aerial Recon. They’re experienced pilots and are Robinson Helicopters experts. I can’t imagine ever finding another team that would look after my best interest with any more care and professionalism.

Give them a call. You won’t be disappointed. Good luck with your purchase!
