Rolls-Royce congratulates Robinson Helicopter on certification of turbine powered R66

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, congratulates Robinson Helicopter Company on achieving certification of the new R66. The helicopter was FAA certified October 25 during a ceremony held at the Robinson facility in Torrance, CA.

The R66 is powered by a single Rolls-Royce RR300 turboshaft engine and is the first turbine powered model in Robinson's product line. The RR300 offers ample power, true multi-fuel capability, turbine engine responsiveness, smoothness and worry-free reliability.

Ken Roberts, Rolls-Royce President – Helicopter Engines, said "Rolls-Royce is pleased to congratulate Robinson on certification of the R66. Robinson Helicopter is known for their quality products and has taken great care in creating the R66 model. We're proud to be working with Robinson and supplying power for this new aircraft."

The R66 is a five-seat helicopter which includes a two-blade rotor system and open interior configuration. In relation to its predecessor, the R66 model has increased reserve power and altitude performance.

The relationship between Rolls-Royce and Robinson Helicopter Company began in 2005 with the signing of a Development Agreement and the two companies have worked closely since then to develop the RR300 engine which provides optimal performance and reliability.
