About Us

JR Helicopters LLC offers a wide variety of services including helicopter and fixed wing charter, Aerial Filming, Aerial Application, Forestry, Fire Suppression, Siesmic  and Precision Lifting.  Incorporated in Washington State in August of 2000 by Jason Rubright, the company started with a single 4 place Robinson R-44 Raven. Soon after the R-44 was replaced by a turbine powered Bell JetRanger.  Since then we have steadily grown our fleet and customer base as well as increasing our services offered to provide the most effective and diverse services in the Pacific Northwest. 

Currently we operate a fleet of turbine powered helicopters ranging from the reliable and mission capable Bell 206 to the high performance Airbus AS 350 B3e.  Rounding out our fleet is one of the best airplanes ever built, the Beechcraft King Air.  We hold FAA Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate, FAA Part 133 External Load Certificate, and FAA Part 137 Agricultural Operations Certificate, allowing our highly skilled and experienced pilots to accomplish just about any mission.
