New Owner for Safari Helicopters

CHR International has acquired Safari helicopter, the Experimental kit formerly known as the Baby Belle for its resemblance to the Bell 47.
Murray Sweet, who is one of the original developers of the Safari, will remain involved with the company as a technical consultant, and other members of the Safari staff will also continue to be involved. CHRs Bobby and Delane Baker anticipate providing support for Safari owners through the development of a worldwide dealer network that will include North America. Safari owners are our most valuable resource, says Delane Baker, and we look to them for ideas for the continual improvement of the Safari.
