Robinson R22 Beta II
Universal Helicopters utilizes Robinson R22 Beta II helicopters for primary flight training. Superior perfomance, outstanding reliability, and exceptional value have made the two seat R22 the world’s most popular training helicopter for nearly two decades. Also, around 4,500 R22 helicopters have been delivered to 60 countries around the globe. The R22 holds every performance record in its weight class including speed, altitude and distance. Standard features include an RPM governor, rotor brake, and voice activated intercom. The helicopter’s clean aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 110 mph and an average fuel consumption of only 7-10 gallons per hour. Additionally, the Robinson R22 BII are powered by the dependable Lycoming O-360 engine.
The R22 is a classic example of design excellence. No other helicopter in its class can match its speed, reliability, affordable price, and low operating costs. The R22 has fewer accidents due to aircraft or engine failure than other helicopters. And, Robinson’s commitment to the highest quality in design, materials, and craftsmanship make it the enduring choice for flight training.
