Robinson Helicopter Company Delivers 500th R66 Helicopter




Robinson Helicopter Company Delivers 500th R66 Helicopter


Robinson Helicopters, March 21, 2014 - Torrance, CA - R66 Turbine S/N 500 rolled off Robinson’s production line on March 14, 2014, three and half years since the 5-place helicopter was initially certificated in October 2010.

The helicopter was delivered to Aviamarket, one of three R66 dealers in Russia, and will be on display at this year’s Heli-Russia Exhibition in Moscow, May 22-24.

Aviamarket successfully tested the aircraft’s capabilities last year, first in April when Aviamarket pilots landed R66 S/N 0040 at the North Pole and again in September when the company organized a six week Around-the-World Expedition using two R66 helicopters.

To meet expanding market demands, over one-hundred R66 service centers and sixty-eight R66 dealers have been established worldwide. Glass and touch-screen avionics were recently added to the R66’s options list and Robinson-engineered floats and cargo hook are currently undergoing final testing.

Founded in 1973, Robinson Helicopter Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of civil helicopters.
