Robinson R22

R22The Robinson R22 helicopter is utilized primarily for flight training.

The R22 is flown throughout the world for many applications that require dependability, low operating costs, and performance. A powerful engine, a lightweight steel-tube airframe, and aerodynamic shape gives the R22 a cruise speed of up to 90 kts and an average fuel consumption of only 7-9 gallons per hour. The R22 seats two adults and occupants have panoramic views due to R22’s large windows. The R22 has a very low inertia rotor system and the control inputs are operated directly by push rods with no hydraulic assistance. Thus, the flight controls are very sensitive and require a light touch to avoid over correcting. A student that masters an R22 generally does not have a problem transitioning to a heavier helicopter.

Passenger capacity is 1.
