So I've been using the W.Tampa for a while now but I'm looking for something new.
My choices as of now are the Buzzard and the Savage and I'd like to know people's thoughts about these aircrafts and if you guys can suggest other vehicles.

I've always used the Buzzard. I've always finished it pretty quickly.

The Savage isn't nimble enough, in my opinion. It can fire missiles more rapidly than the Buzzard can, but in my opinion the lack of maneuverability, plus its weak armor (you'll be getting shot at by your target's bodyguards plus the cops) rule it out for me.

The Hunter might be a serious contender here; we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah I'm kinda leaning towards to Buzzard too but didn't they buff the armour on the Savage? Or is it still a flying cardboard box with guns?

And yeah, I'm excited to see what the Hunter can do. I just need something to help me do Headhunter for now. W.Tampa's getting a bit boring tbh.

I typically use the buzzard for the ease of it, as in you don't have to go pick it up like the savage, either one works fine though.

 

You can easily missile lock onto enemies that are too far away to shoot back at you in either chopper, as JR mentioned above the buzzard has the best handling/maneuverability hands down, but the no delay in successive missile firing on the savage can be very convenient as well. I find that when I'm in the buzzard and I come up on targets on the road that I have to time my missiles well so that the vehicles inhabitants don't get a chance to exit the vehicle and spread out too far due to the delay between shots 2 and 3 if you rapid fire the first two missiles. But even then it's such a minor issue that the buzzard usually wins out for me.

I've used the Savage for Headhunter a few times. If they spot you, expect some smoke as they have uncanny range and accuracy. Best thing with the Savage is to spam the missiles, and if you can, use the explosive cannon. It isn't as nimble as a Buzzard, but once you get the nose tilting back and forth, the cannons will shred their armored cars.

My go to vehicles for headhunter are Buzzard, Hydra, and Oppressor. Buzzard as it's easiest to get with CEO spawn right next to you and can finish in 5 minutes, Hydra speeds it up considerably though. I can usually complete HH in as little as 3 minutes with hydra, but going to Pegasus spawn negates some of the time savings. Oppressor is also a good option as well if you have rockets researched.

I do have the missiles for the Oppressor, it's the first item I unlocked but I wasn't sure if its missile capacity was enough to finish headhunter. That and it's the most expensive vehicle out of the 3 ; asides from the hydra.

True, but it's also the funnest (imo)!

Also, 20 rockets should be more than enough.

I use the Buzzard or Savage. I've gotten my quickest times using the Savage tho. It's a beast for this VIP job. I prefer the Savage but the Buzzard is used more cause it spawns at my feet.

if u paint crop duster full gold, chrome or hot pink, it becomes indestructable and gets speed boost. Therefore I must say, Crop Duster is THE BEST vehicle to use for HH

Before it was always Buzzard and Duke o'Death for me.

but now?

Oppressor - cause it's fast and super fun to use

CEO Havok - for landing on rooftops 

Tula or any other new plane - for bomb dropping

I'll certainly be using the Hunter once it releases. I mean, it's even in the name.

It is as true as the offer I've gotten from the Nigerian Prince about him depositing 12 million bucks into my account if I send him 1000 bucks for the shipping fees.

I have killed multiple hydra kids with my Pink Supercharged Crop Duster though.

I've always used the Hydra. Doesn't matter where the targets are, I can get the job done in two or three minutes and then get back to what I was doing.

 

For helicopters, I recommend the Buzzard. It's the most useful of the three. It's fast and nimble, you can spawn it at your feet, and it's surprisingly durable.

The Savage is about the size of the International Space Station and takes about a decade to swing its heft around to change direction, plus those props are more of a hazard to the helicopter itself than anything else.

The Hunter has been a disappointment with my experience thus far, the missile barrage being inaccurate, and the lock-ons being too slow to turn, missing anything moving faster than a dog dragging its ass on the carpet. Plus, you can't fly it yet unless you're crafty or playing with some PC magic, and it's bound to be stupidly expensive.

I've tried the Savage a few couple times already and I got used to strafing and circling around my targets but I do agree, thing's a flying tugboat. The Hydra is a pretty solid choice too but the thing with helicopters is that I can land them in my office and repair them if I ever do something stupid while flying.

The list just keeps on growing but at least I now have an idea on which vehicle I should get first.

I've tried the hydra and found it a little fiddly compared to the buzzard which is what I always use. It's so quick a nimblentoull struggle to get it done quicker with anything else I think. Especially once you're familiar with all the targets locations and how to approach each one.

The fact that it is so readily available from the CEO menu makes it perfect. Maybe not as fun as the others but definitely the most oractical i think.

Buzzard, just keep your distance as those NPC's are accurate. You might also have to land every now and then as a few targets are under cover.

I use the Buzzard for HH. It's fast, and the homing missles work great. Just be sure to be following the target or your missles will miss. Most of the time I can complete it in 5 minutes.
If you're looking for speed runs, I think the Hydra would be best. You could probably do HH in about 3 minutes due to its better top speed.
Personally I'm looking at picking up the Vigilante when it gets released specifically for Headhunter.

I use the buzzard all the time and make sure to do HH in the city as the targets are quicker to get to. Up north you can run into them being spread out more, and time is money. If you're grinding CEO missions, starting a contact mission like blow up 3 while in your helicopter puts you right at the objective. Have your Tampa, do HH, blow up 3, and when you finish that, hostile takeover or sightseer should be ready. Rinse and repeat.

Looking at my list of options and I've narrowed it down to the 2 most efficient vehicles, those being the Hydra and the Buzzard. One thing to consider is the armour. How does the Hydra fare against the Buzzard in terms of armour/toughness?
