Torrance, CA— Robinson Helicopter Company is now delivering the R66 with optional air conditioning. The simple, lightweight system provides air conditioned comfort and reduced humidity throughout the five-seat cabin.
An overhead console provides vents for each seat with 250 CFM total airflow. The 42 lb air conditioner uses the latest automotive refrigerant and has 17,000 BTU/hr cooling capacity. The system is controlled by a toggle switch with low and high fan settings and uses approximately three horsepower during operation. The evaporator and fan are mounted under the aft center seat, preserving all four under-seat baggage compartments. The compressor engages when the fan is switched on and automatically disengages during autorotation entry to maximize glide performance.
The air conditioning option is $23,000 USD. Production of new air conditioned R66 helicopters is underway with the first air conditioned R66 to be on display at this year’s Heli-Expo in Orlando, Florida. Robinson’s R66 dealer, Florida Suncoast, will take delivery of this aircraft after the show.
Robinson Helicopter Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of civil helicopters.
