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.
