With The Robinson R66 order Book now open for more than 18 months we are extremely proud to announce our deliveries surpassing the Half dozen mark with a further dozen aircraft in this range on order. The owners that have taken delivery are all extremely impressed with every aspect of the machine. Our maintenance department has spent many hours in training on this type and have now completed various MPI’s as well as a handful of small fairly insignificant snags.
This machine has now impressed everyone from line pilot operations to owners, charter companies, passengers and maintenance organisations.
The new five-seat Robinson R66 turbine encompasses many of the Robinson R44 features.
The customary two-bladed rotor, T-bar cyclic and open interior cabin configuration, to name a few, are the features that have made the R44 such a huge success. Some new features include vastly increased reserve power, increased altitude performance and the new 5th seat. With the additional power advantage, increased luggage capacity was also incorporated. Leather seats, HID landing lights and a stereo audio control panel are standard in the R66.
With these additional features, we think there are exciting times ahead in the turbine sector.
The turbine has not compromised price, but will revolutionise the turbine market.
