The new Robinson R66 Turbine helicopter retains many of the design features of the R44, including a two-bladed rotor system, T-bar cyclic, and an open interior cabin configuration. Notable differences are the R66’s increased reserve power (Rolls Royce RR300 turbine engine), improved altitude performance (14,000 ft max operating ceiling), fifth seat, and large roomy baggage compartment. Popular upgrades including HID landing lights, leather seats, and a stereo audio control panel are standard in the R66.
The versatile two-seat R44 Cadet helicopter is ideally suited for flight training; small in size without sacrificing any of the power and performance of a larger helicopter.
The Cadet features the same airframe, rotor system, and Lycoming O-540 engine as the proven R44 Raven I. The differences are the Cadet’s aft compartment has been reconfigured for cargo, the maximum gross weight is reduced to 2200 lbs., and the engine power is derated to 210 take-off and 185 continuous. The lower weight and derated power provide increased performance margins at high altitudes and lengthen the time between overhaul to 2400 hours.
R44 Raven I and Raven II
For pilots who expect superiority and understand value, the R.44’s design and brilliant performance make it an idyllic choice for private and business use. The R44 delivers the performance of a turbine helicopter at a reasonable price. Its sleek design, speed and supreme dependability give it the competitive edge in today’s market.
Hydraulic power controls and balanced pistol cyclic controls are designed for more comfort and smoother transition. Automatic clutch engagement simplifies the start up procedure. Advanced warning devices include low fuel warning main gearbox temperature and chip lights, tail gearbox chip light, low oil pressure light, engine fire light low voltage alternator light, low RPM warning light and horn plus rotor brake and starter engaged warning lights. The rotor brake reduces shutdown time and risk. Robinson uses Lycoming engines for long life and reliability.
Maintenance between 100 hours only requires oil changes, keeping maintenance costs low. Time between overhaul is 2200 hours or 12 years. Primary controls are actuated by maintenance-free bell-cranks and push-pull tubes. Rotor blades are stainless steel with a thick leading edges to minimize erosion.
The high-performance R44 Raven II is designed for more payload, higher altitudes, and faster speeds with all the luxuries of the Raven I. The latest in the R44 line, this aircraft is also available as a Clipper II, Police Helicopter, and Newscopter.
Superior performance, outstanding reliability, and exceptional value have made the two-seat R22 the world’s most popular entry-level helicopter for nearly two decades. More than 3,600 R22 helicopters have been delivered to more than 60 countries around the globe. The R22 holds major performance records in its weight class including speed and distance. And the latest R22 Beta II is still sensibly priced with the industry’s lowest cost of operation.
The Beta II is generously equipped and offers a wide selection of options. Standard features include a precision-engineered RPM governor, a durable rotor brake, an auxiliary fuel system for added versatility and increased range, plus a high-quality voice-activated intercom. The Beta II’s clean aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 110 MPH and an average fuel consumption of only 7 to 10 gallons per hour. The cabin provides comfortable seating for two with removable dual controls on the passenger side.
The R22 is a classic example of design excellence. No other helicopter in its class can match its speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. The R22 has fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other light helicopters, and Robinson’s commitment to the highest quality in design, materials, and craftsmanship make it the enduring choice for flight training, radio traffic watch, power line patrol, and other applications that require performance, dependability, efficiency, and easy maintenance.
The Agusta Westland A109E is a lightweight twin-engine helicopter, known for its speed, elegant appearance and ease of control. Configured for 7 passengers, the A109E Power is the fastest helicopter in its class.
The A109E features a fully separated fuel system supplying its twin engines, plus a dual hydraulic boost system, dual electrical system, and redundant lubrication and cooling systems for the main transmission and engines. An air oil absorber for each wheeled type landing gear leg increases the crashworthiness and shipdeck operational capabilities.
The Bell 47 is a single rotor, single engine, light helicopter. It features a two-blade main rotor with a stabilizer bar and a two blade tail rotor, seats 2 passengers side-by-side, and its cabin is protected by a Plexiglas “bubble” which gives unparalleled visibility in all directions. Approved for commercial flight in 1946, it quickly became the first successful commercial helicopter by the early 1950s. While in motion, the two-bladed rotor makes a “chop-chop” sound, which lead to helicopters being nicknamed “choppers.”
The Bell 47 was used intensively during the Korean War as an aerial ambulance to transport wounded to the MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) units.
The Gyroplane is a unique and versatile aircraft that is robust, reliable and has considerable range. It is easy to control and to handle. It is fun to fly and is a superb platform for both training and leisure flights. This fun aircraft features an open cockpit, dual controls, airframe and accessories fabricated from high-grade TIG welded chromoly steel for durability and reliability, hydraulic disc brakes with a lockable parking brake, rotor brake, and powerful engine-driven prerotator. With effortless ease, a gyro’s autorotating rotor blades allow you to experience a flight with little to no turbulence and they are able to take off and land almost anywhere.
