The Robinson R66 is a 5 seat, single engine light helicopter capable of transporting up to 5 passengers a distance of up to 350nm. The R66 has increased reserve power as well as improved altitude performance compared to its predecessor (the R44); it also benefits from an extra seat as well as dedicated baggage space.

The R66 is a popular helicopter available for charter in most areas of the UK as well as the rest of the world. It is an excellent choice for the majority of short distance business and leisure flights and is a popular choice for Wedding Helicopter Hire as well as flying to racecourses such as Ascot, Aintree and Newmarket.

Aircraft Description

The R66 Turbine was awarded FAA certification in 2010 and since then has been a popular choice for domestic short distance charters. The cabin has 5 seats and is large enough for 5 passengers to fit comfortably with ample space and plenty of leg room.

Unlike the earlier models (R22 and R44) the R66 provides a dedicated space for passengers to store luggage in the aircraft's baggage compartment. It also includes HID landing lights and a stereo audio control panel. Although the R66 Turbine has many new features compared to the earlier R44 model it has also maintained some of the original design features such as the T-bar cyclic, two-bladed rotor system and open interior cabin configuration. 

The R66 Turbine's single Rolls-Royce RR300 engine allows it to fly at a cruise speed of up to 125 kts (144 mph) and the 73.6 gal fuel capacity allows for a maximum no reserve range of approximately 350nm.
