    Two More R66 Police for Polk County Sheriff

    Robinson Helicopters, March 08, 2022 - Torrance, CA — Robinson Helicopter Company received two more R66 Police helicopter orders from Florida’s Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) less than a year after the department took delivery of its first R66 Police helicopter.

    Centrally located between Orlando and Tampa, PSCO flies, on average, 1,100 hours each year providing air support for every law enforcement agency in its 2,000 square mile county (pop. 750,000) as well as surrounding counties. “We are adding a second and third R66 because of our confidence in the helicopter’s ability and functionality. It’s a great aircraft that has reduced our operating costs by nearly fifty percent,” said Sheriff Grady Judd.

    Both R66s will be equipped with auxiliary fuel tanks and impact resistant windshields, NVG compatible lighting in the cockpit with a full complement of modern avionics including a Garmin G500H display, AeroComputers moving map system, Genesys HeliSAS Autopilot, Technisonic tactical radio, and a Wescam MX-10 camera system.

    With a speed of up to 130 kts (241 km) per hour and a useful load of 786 lb (357 kg), the four-place Robinson R66 Police combines power, performance, and payload with mission-specific equipment. Turnkey ready, the R66 Police helicopter is ready for patrol the moment it arrives on station.

    Both aircraft are scheduled for delivery in 2022.
