News ::  New Robinson R44 Clipper Arrives!

10/15/03     [view other news articles]

Heliflight is proud to present a new addition to it's fleet of reliable Robinson Helicopters.

The R44 Clipper has emergency pop-out floats for extended flights over water, landings on remote lakes, and extra security when flying over busy harbors. A low center-of-gravity enhances the Clipper's stability on rough lakes, and its advanced single-bag float design allows safer lift-off after water surface landings.
The pop-out floats add about 65 pounds to the empty weight with almost no reduction in the 130 mph cruise speed as compared to the R44 Raven.
Unlike some emergency floats, the Clipper's pop-out floats have the same buoyancy as the fixed utility floats. All R44 Clippers are built to last with specialized corrosion proofing throughout. Standard equipment includes custom ground handling wheels and a pressure gage to check float pressure.
