Robinson Helicopter Company Delivers 12,000th Helicopter


In late December 2016, R66 S/N 0763 became the 12,000th helicopter to roll off Robinson Helicopter’s production line. “It’s a nice way to end the year,” said Robinson President Kurt Robinson.


S/N 0763 will be delivered to Hover Dynamics, one of three long-time Robinson dealers in South Africa. The helicopter was purchased by a new charter and tour operator, Fly Karoo Air Services, operating in the area of Graaff-Reinet. According to


Dean Feldman of Hover Dynamics, Fly Karoo chose the R66 because of its powerful turbine engine, quieter cabin, spacious baggage compartment, and low operating costs.


Robinson’s first two-place R22 was produced and delivered in 1979, the first four-place R44 in 1993, and the first five-place R66 in 2010. Robinson also offers a multitude of variants including the recently introduced R44 Cadet, a two-place helicopter specially configured for training.


Paravion Technology Inc. Announces Chinese Validation for FAA STC for Bell 429 Blade Fold Kit


Recently, Paravion Technology Inc. announced that the Civil Aviation Administration of China validated the FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) for its Blade Fold Kit for Bell 429 helicopters. With the fixed provisions installed, owners and operators can store their aircraft in space-limited areas, such as small, off-site hangars and aboard ocean-going vessels.


To fold the blades, first, slip a blade clamp onto each main rotor blade. Quick-release pins are then inserted into the fixed provisions on the airframe and the blade supports are attached to the pins. The supports are raised to move the fore and aft blades off of their droop stops. The inboard expandable blade bolts of the supported blades are then removed and the main rotor head rotated to reposition and secure the two remaining blades. The entire operation can be completed in less than 20 minutes by two people.
