Robinson R-66

Our R66 with a Cineflex Camera

Our five-seat Robinson R-66 is a stable platform for instrument, long line, and turbine transition training.  This is an economical and high-performance aircraft with a higher Vne, higher service ceiling at gross weight, and lower operating cost than the Bell 206.  The instruments include a G500 which will serve as your traditional 6 pack along with terrain awareness and synthetic vision.  Also includes the GTN750 that will function as your GPS/Nav/Comm/MFD/WAAS/SBAS LPV on its 6.9” touch screen display.  Finally, the cargo hook is capable of lifting 1015 lbs. For your training we have 30′-200′ lines, a cargo net, grapple, and a water bucket.  Prices start at $875/hour for VFR/IFR training and $900/hour for long line and night (10 hour discounted block rates available). This aircraft is only available at our main base in Oregon.
