Robinson celebrates milestone delivery with paint make-over
Wednesday, 28 April 2021
Forty-two years since the delivery of the first R22, Robinson has notched up an average of over 300 helicopters per year to customers all around the world. There are three models in the line-up.

Robinson Helicopter has delivered its 13,000th helicopter, an R44 with serial number 14438 to longtime Robinson dealer SKY Helicopters of Dallas, Texas.

The latest example shows off a brand-new paint scheme and is equipped with the latest in R44 options; a Lithium-ion battery, heated seats, and a 4K cockpit video camera. The aircraft also includes a well configured glass panel featuring Garmin's 700L TXi, GTN 650Xi navigator, and a Genesys HeliSAS Autopilot.

SKY president Ken Pyatt wanted a new generation R44 to round-out the company's fleet. "We purchased this R44 for our Part 135 air taxi and tour operations," says Pyatt, "because we needed a safe and reliable helicopter than can fly all day, every day." A dealer since 1996, this latest acquisition puts SKY's Robinson fleet at 27.

Robinson Helicopter Company has a come a long way since 1979 when its first two-place R22 was delivered. Fast forward 42 years, today's Robinsons are offered in a multitude of sizes and configurations. Whether it is an R22, R44 or R66, Robinson helicopters continue to set the standard for reliability and remain the most cost-effective helicopter on the market.

Founded in 1973, Robinson Helicopter Company is the world's leading manufacturer of civil helicopters.
