The Aircraft - Robinson R44 Raven
All experiences will take place in a Robinson R44 Raven helicopter which can carry* up to 3 passengers plus the Pilot. The R44 Raven is a high performing, reliable and easy to maintain aircraft. R44s have a two-bladed rotor system, T-bar cyclic and the latest in Robinson technology including streamlined instrument panels.
The R44’s aerodynamic fuselage optimizes airspeed and fuel economy. Hydraulic controls eliminate feedback forces and provide responsive handling. A low tail-rotor tip speed, newly designed muffler and large cambered tail reduce flyover noise. The R44 Raven is powered by Lycoming’s IO-540 fuel injected engine. The IO-540 delivers better altitude performance, increased payload and eliminates the need for carburetor heat.
