New collective-activated hour meter reduces operating costs for R22 Beta II

Robinson Helicopter Company Inc. announced today that a collective- activated hour meter along with an updated hub and redesigned main rotor spindles are standard on all new R22 Beta II helicopters. Previously, the R22 used an oil-pressure-activated meter which records all engine run time. The new collective activated meter records collective- up (flight) time and does not include engine warm up and cool down time.

The new meter and redesigned spindles benefit R22 buyers because the collective-activated meter can extend component lives by up to 12% and the redesigned spindles are not subject to repetitive dye-penetrant inspections.
