FAA Approves Robinson R66 Cargo Hook


Recently, the FAA approved the Robinson R66 cargo hook installation. The optional cargo hook carries external loads up to 1,200 pounds and, for external load operations, the R66’s maximum gross weight increases from 2,700 to 2,900 pounds.


The cargo hook installation includes an onboard systems hook, right- and left-seat controls (allowing for solo flight from either seat), a left-seat hydraulic switch, and a left-seat start button. A load weight gauge and a second set of engine power gauges (torque and gas temperature) are located in the left door sill, allowing the pilot to monitor engine operations while keeping an eye on the external load. Provisions for remote control of external equipment (e.g. water dropping bucket) are also included.
