Robinson R-44

Our Raven I at the Downtown Portland Helipad

Here at JTH We operate two Robinson R-44 helicopters, Raven I and Raven II models. Both of our R-44 helicopters are based at our McMinnville, Oregon location. The R-44 is the big brother of the R-22 helicopter. It is a smoother and more powerful ship with a higher payload.
