CA — Robinson Helicopter Company achieved another milestone when its
8000th helicopter was flight certified. The new, solid green, Robinson
R44 Raven II S/N 11984 was ordered by SkySales Aviation (Christchurch,
New Zealand) for a private owner.
Owned by Alex Rodgers, Sky Sales started its affiliation with
Robinson first as a service center in 1986 before being named a
Robinson dealer in the early 1990s. SkySales also performs maintenance
and overhauls, flies charters, and conducts pilot training.
Robinson Helicopter Company was founded in 1973. The first R22 was
delivered in October 1979. In 1993, the R44 came online and is now the
best selling helicopter in the world. The R44 is offered in two models:
The Raven I and the more powerful Raven II. The Raven II is available
in four specialty configurations: Police Helicopter, Newscopter,
Clipper, and IFR Trainer.
