Aircraft - Robinson R44 Raven ::

For those who expect excellence and appreciate value, at last there's the R44 Raven. Quite simply, the Raven delivers the performance of an expensive turbine helicopter at an affordable piston price. Its sleek design, impressive speed, and unparalleled reliability give it the competitive edge in today's fast-paced, changing environment.

Affordable luxury defines the Raven. Standard features include a precision-engineered RPM governor, a durable rotor brake, an auxiliary fuel system for added versatility and longer range, a powerful heater/defogger, and hydraulic power controls that completely eliminate stick shake and control forces for a smooth, relaxing ride. The Raven's distinctive aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 130 mph and an average fuel consumption of only 12 to 16 gallons per hour. The cabin offers comfortable "two plus two" seating with removable dual controls and no bulkhead or post between the front and rear seats, assuring exceptional visibility and panoramic views for all passengers.

The R44 is available in optional utility configurations for specialized missions. The R44 Clipper is equipped with fixed utility or pop-out emergency floats for over-water operations; the R44 Police Helicopter includes all the technological equipment necessary for successful airborne law enforcement; the R44 IFR Trainer's enlarged instrument panel accommodates all the avionics and instruments necessary to qualify and train VFR pilots for an instrument flight rating; and the R44 Newscopter is the first turn-key aerial platform designed specifically for high-quality live television news broadcasting.

Robinson's engineering emphasis on quality, reliability, and performance has made the R44 Raven the world's top-selling helicopter. It has fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other light helicopters, and best of all, the Raven has the lowest cost per seat-mile of any helicopter anywhere.
