Robinson R66 gains its EASA certificate

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued its type certificate for the Robinson R66 Turbine helicopter. EASA certification marks an important milestone for Robinson, as two-thirds of the company’s sales have historically come from foreign customers.

Robinson will now focus on delivering the backlog of orders from Europe and strengthening its presence in the European market. Presently, there are sixteen R66 service centres, of which thirteen are dealers, approved in Europe.
