R66 Turbine & R66 Turbine Marine

Features | Specifications | EquipmentInstruments | Avionics

The five-seat R66 Turbine helicopter is reliable, economical and easy to maintain. R66s have a two-bladed rotor system, T-bar cyclic and the latest in Robinson technology including streamlined instrument panels, energy absorbing seats and crashworthy bladder fuel tanks. What distinguishes the R66 is a spacious 300 lb capacity baggage compartment and the Rolls Royce RR300 turboshaft engine. The RR300 engine operates on readily available Jet A fuel and offers increased reserve power, additional payload and improved altitude performance. Hydraulic controls eliminate feedback forces and provide responsive handling.

Outfitted with pop-out floats, the R66 Turbine Marine offers an additional level of safety for over-water travel. Designed for emergencies, the six-chamber floats inflate within 2-3 seconds of activation. The installation adds approximately 65 pounds to the helicopter’s empty weight. When not in use, floats roll-up and stow in protective covers along the aircraft’s landing skids. The streamlined, low profile design minimizes drag and allows for easy entry and exit of the cabin.

With continued focus on safety, the R66 meets the latest FAA crashworthiness regulations.

IFR Training

To prepare and qualify IFR pilots, the R66 can be equipped with the recommended instruments and avionics including Primary and Multi-Function Displays, GTN 650 or 750 navigators, Mode S transponders with ADS-B, and a digital chronometer as listed on the Optional Avionics & Instruments Price List.*

*Although the R66 with IFR equipment is designed for instrument flight training, it is not approved for actual IFR operations. While student pilots are flying on instruments, the instructor must act as the safety pilot and operate only under VFR conditions.
