Robinson to Deliver 700th R66 Helicopter


Robinson Helicopters, December 18, 2015 - Torrance, California – Robinson’s 700th R66 Turbine rolled off the production line on December 18, 2015, five years after the 5-place helicopter was FAA certificated.

Serial Number 700 is an R66 Turbine Marine, which is an R66 equipped with pop-out floats, and will be delivered to Robinson Dealer Air Technology Belgium.

This will be the first Turbine Marine delivered to Europe since EASA approved the float option in October and one of the more than fifty R66s sold to Europe.

Robinson recently added the Garmin G500H Flight Display, and the Genesys HeliSAS Autopilot to the R66 options list. Currently in
development are an R66 auxiliary fuel tank and an R66 cargo hook. Both options are projected for release in 2016.

To date, Robinson has approved 120 R66 Service Centers worldwide, of which seventy-two are Dealers.

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