Robinson Helicopter Company breaks production record again

Robinson Helicopter Company continues to be the world's leading manufacture of civilian helicopters. Robinson again breaks its own record producing 893 civil helicopters in 2008 surpassing its prior record of 823 set in 2007.

Without question, the R44 is the reason for Robinson's continuing success and record- breaking numbers. Introduced in 2002, the Raven II, a more powerful version of the original R44 now accounts for 60% of the company's aircraft sales. The original R44, later designated the Raven I, accounts for roughly 20% of aircraft sales. Finally, the R22 with 164 ships produced in 2008 still maintains its niche in an increasingly competitive market.

Robinson's focus for 2009 will continue to be product development and maintaining its record-breaking production.

Press release issued by Robinson Helicopter Company on January 30, 2009
