Technical

Since 2010 the 5 seat R66 has quickly become a top-selling turbine helicopter. It is economical, reliable and kept simple by design. With over 1000 units sold, this helicopter has proven itself in a challenging market. The R66 is powered by the robust and reliable Rolls Royce RR300 turboshaft engine which is a slightly modified version of the Allison 250-C20B engine that has been around since 1958 with over 30,000 units produced.

With a comfortable cabin size, large rear cargo bay, impressive performance and tail rotor authority, the R66 is in a class by itself. The performance of the R66 is impressive. We personally have taken off at 21 deg C with 4 (200 lb) people and a full tank (3 hours of fuel). Not too many aircraft manufacturers build aircraft that can take off and perform at max weight. We have also landed at 13,000 feet with 3 adult males and 3/4 tank of fuel with plenty of power reserve. Bell Jet Rangers and Ec 120s will not be able to come close to the R66 when it comes to operating costs and performance.

Robinson kept the systems simple and easy to maintain. Inspections are performed every 100 hours and annually. Overhaul schedule is every 12 years or 2000 hours whichever comes first. There are worldwide support for maintenance and Aerial Recon is always here to assist our clients.
