Milestone: Robinson Delivers 3000th R44

One of the hardest-working helos in the GA biz has just recorded yet another in a series of impressive milestones.

Just thirteen years after the first production model R44 helicopter rolled off the assembly line, Robinson Helicopters’ Terry Hane presented the key for the 3000th model R44 to Frank Leon of Segrave Aviation. Located in North Carolina, Segrave Aviation has been an authorized Robinson R22 and R44 dealer for over 5 years. The 3000th R44 was sold by Segrave to real estate developer Chris Bond, who plans to use the red helicopter for showing properties to clients.

Developed in the mid-1980s to fill the void between two-seat helicopters and expensive multi-passenger turbine aircraft, the four-place R44 helicopter received FAA certification in late 1992. Production deliveries began in February 1993. Since then the R44 has become the best selling helicopter in the world. The R44 is offered in two models: The Raven I and the more powerful Raven II. The Raven II is available in four specialty configurations: Police Helicopter, Newscopter, Clipper, and IFR Trainer.
