Helitreck owns a Beechcraft Baron D55, which is a light, twin-engine piston aircraft.

With a cruise speed of 185 knots, we use our IFR capable Baron to conduct crew changes with the least disturbance to field operations

Our fixed wing pilots are available to conduct flights early in the morning so that crew changes are swiftly completed before the days flying begins.
