The United Kingdom now hasÂ an R66 fleet of four.Â This follows HeliAirâ€™s delivery of serial 0041 as N66MV to a private owner in Cheshire just prior to Helitech last week.Â The helicopter was present at Duxford on the second day of the event.
Between the two UK distributors â€“ the other one being Sloane Helicopters â€“ they are believed to have a total of around 30 R66s on order with deposits.Â Both companies are frustrated by the slow progress of EASA certification of the type as most purchasers are not interested in getting an FAA licence to operate their aircraft on an N registration.
