Robinson R44


Robinson R44

First introduced in 1993, the Robinson R44 is manufactured by the Robinson Helicopter company. It is a small 4 seat aircraft with two bladed rotor and tail rotor. Several versions of the R44 have been built including the initial Astro, Raven and Raven II. The R44 is powered by a Lycoming IO-540 AE1A5 able to lift a payload of around 408 kgs. Range of the R44 is 300 nautical miles though this reduces significantly with increase load. It has a cruise speed of 110 knots.

Robinson R44’s are entry level helicopters widely used by flying schools and helicopter charter operators for short hops with light loads. They have a cheap cost of operation and this is reflected in the low cost to charter this particular helicopter type. Being a single engine helicopter this aircraft would need to be fitted with floats to operate over water, and is restricted from flying in instrument conditions or at night.

Used R44’s are on the market from $150k with new R44 aircraft for sale at $500k.
