Now available at a reduced price. This great R44 Clipper II was overhauled at the Robinson Helicopter Factory in July of 2019. New paint and interior completed at the same time as the very thorough(and expensive @ 345k USD). During this time the aircraft was torn down with all required parts replaced and in Robinson fashion, replaced many items that they deemed necessary. This leads to a machine that looks and flys like a new helicopter. I can tell you after flying in it, it is running like a top.
The paint and interior are new from the overhaul so this helicopter looks, smells, and flies like new. It has a Radar Altimeter, which has become a commercial requirement in the USA. The pop-out floats have been redone with the overhaul. You get the benefits of new but at much less of a purchase price. This helicopter will still have 11 years and 2100 hours remaining. A new helicopter equipped with the same equipment would cost over 550,000 USD. Link the ADS-B to your iPad with Foreflight and see all of the ADS-B traffic all around you.
The registration marks are decals(taped on). This makes it easier to change for international sales or if you wish to change the registration marks. Logos seen on aircraft are decals and easily removed as well.
The overhaul was completed by the factory at Robinson Helicopter Company in Torrance California, USA in July of 2019. During the extensive overhaul, everything is brought up to the current standards and anything in question is replaced. Because of this, factory overhauls are some of the most expensive. The cost for this overhaul was over 348,000 USD and have the records to prove it. During this time the helicopter received a new paint job and interior.
