Robinson R22

The Robinson R22 is the most popular rotorcraft for pilot training and being used at the Mauna Loa Helicopters. It is a two-bladed, single-engine light utility helicopter manufactured by Robinson Helicopter. The two-seat R22 was designed in 1973 by Frank Robinson and has been in production since 1979.

Its superior performance, outstanding reliability, and exceptional value has made it world’s most popular entry-level helicopter for nearly two decades. More than 3,600 R22 helicopters have been delivered to more than 60 countries around the globe. The R22 holds major performance records in its weight class including speed and distance. And the latest R22 Beta II available at reasonable price offers lowest cost of operation. The Beta II offers a wide selection of options.

Standard features include a precision-engineered RPM governor, a durable rotor brake, an auxiliary fuel system for added versatility and increased range, plus a high-quality voice-activated intercom. Its aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 110 mph and an average fuel consumption of only 7 to 10 gallons per hour. The cabin provides comfortable seating for two with removable dual controls on the passenger side.

The R22 is a classic example of design excellence. No other helicopter in its class can match its speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. Its superior quality standards, design, materials, and craftsmanship make it the enduring choice for flight training, radio traffic watch, power line patrolling, and other applications that require performance, dependability, efficiency, and easy maintenance.
