GOOD NEWS! Robinson 2011 Heli Production More Than Twice That of 2010

Frank Robinson's Wunder-Chopper Had A Good... No, A GREAT, Year

Robinson Helicopter Company has been able to boast, honestly even, that they continue to be the world's leading producer of civil helicopters. That's not likely to change anytime soon and with the news we've just received, it looks to be a sure thing for a long time to come.

In 2011, the company produced 356 helicopters (212 R44s, 88 R66s and 56 R22s), more than double 2010's production of 162 -- despite the economic doldrums.     

2012 is even more promising and while the R44 remains Robinson's top selling helicopter, the response to the R66 Turbine ship has been very strong and for very good reason. The R66 was FAA certificated in October 2010 and as of December 31, 2011, total orders received for the new model exceeded 360. 

Robinson enters 2012 with a backlog of more than 400 aircraft orders making production a top priority. The company has expanded its manufacturing space and is continuing to increase its workforce. Other priorities for 2012 include foreign validation of the R66 and FAA certification of new options for the R66 including floats and a police version. And yes, the Robby folks remain the world's leading manufacturer of civil helicopters.
