Great R44 Clipper II that 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.
Features that are really nice about this helicopter are that it is about 1 year and 100 hours since factory overhaul. It has a Radar Altimeter, which has become a commercial requirement in the USA. The pop-out floats have been redone with the overhaul. The paint and interior are new from the overhaul so this helicopter looks, smells, and flies like new.
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.
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.
