Robinson Helicopters, June 13, 2018 - Torrance, CA — Robinson Helicopter Company received orders for additional R44 Cadets from the universities of North Dakota (UND) and Southern Utah (SUU).

This will be UND’s second Cadet and SUU’s third.

UND’s Chief Helicopter Instructor Wes Van Dell said, “We are very excited to add a second R44 Cadet to our fleet. Having evaluated the Cadet over the past year, we feel it is an outstanding aircraft for flight training. We are an all-weather flight school flying in conditions from 100°F in the summer to -25°F in the winter with winds as high as 30 knots. The Cadet’s performance has exceeded our expectations.”

Richard Cannon, SUU’s Director of Flight Operations, stated, “We have found the Cadet to be a very safe and capable training aircraft, especially at our altitude [5,846 ft] in Cedar City, Utah. With the advanced avionic options, students receive relevant industry training starting with their initial flight.”

Scheduled for delivery in September, both aircraft will be equipped for VFR and IFR training with a fully integrated glass cockpit featuring Garmin’s 1060 TXi (touchscreen) flight display, Garmin’s GTN navigator, and Garmin’s GTX 345 transponder with ADS-B In/Out.

The two-place Cadet offers a spacious baggage compartment, increased performance margins at high altitudes, and a 2400-hour time-between-overhaul.

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