can’t really think of anything. We’ve worked through each issue, it’s a real- ly nice helicopter”. We accelerate to 120 knots. It’s smooth at that speed and it seems to


be the sweet spot where the ship wants to fly. Flying faster obviously increases vibration but 140 knots comes easy descending over LA Harbor. The load capability is tremendous at 927 pounds with full fuel, and later- al CG is such that you have a lot of flexibility where you can put that load.


Let’s remember this ship is still a Robinson. Not a lot of extra girth


and weight and beef. It is however, very fast, very easy to fly as an R44 pilot, turbine, with great climb capabilities. The R66 has a huge space for luggage and is all around very comfortable. Nothing compares to the view from any seat and the extra inch they gave you in the rear seat legroom was a nice change for my six foot five frame. Again, the new R66 may not be everything you want in a 5-seat


helicopter. But it does do a lot of things extremely well, and at close to half the cost of any other 5-seat turbine. Not only will you see this ship breaking new records out there, you


will see it dominate some markets, and quite possibly create a few new ones along the way. I only wish it were a public company so I could put my money where my words are. abcd
