The Robinson R66 turbine has finally been granted EASA certification, some four years after being certified by the US FAA.
The certification allows the R66 to be sold in EASA member countries. The company says this is an important milestone as two-thirds of its sales are outside of its US home market, and it can start delivering its backlog of European orders. Robinson has 16 service centres and 13 dealers approved in Europe for the five-seat R66.
To date, more than 500 R66s have been sold and the fleet has accrued more than 160,000 hours.
