Aircraft - Robinson R22 Beta II ::

Superior performance, outstanding reliability, and exceptional value have made the two-seat R22 the world's most popular entry-level helicopter for nearly two decades. More than 3,000 R22 helicopters have been delivered to 60 countries around the globe. The R22 holds every performance record in its weight class including speed, altitude, and distance. And the latest R22 Beta II is still sensibly priced with the industry's lowest cost of operation. 

The Beta II is generously equipped and offers a wide selection of options. Standard features include a precision-engineered RPM governor, a durable rotor brake, an auxiliary fuel system for added versatility and increased range, plus a high-quality voice-activated intercom. The Beta II's clean aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 110 mph and an average fuel consumption of only 7 to 10 gallons per hour. The cabin provides comfortable seating for two with removable dual controls on the passenger side.

The R22 is a classic example of design excellence. No other helicopter in its class can match its speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. The R22 has fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other light helicopters, and Robinson's commitment to the highest quality in design, materials, and craftsmanship make it the enduring choice for flight training, radio traffic watch, power line patrol, and other applications that require performance, dependability, efficiency, and easy maintenance.
