We know that both UK Robinson dealers â€“ Sloane Helicopters and Heliair â€“ are currently very frustrated by the slow progress on EASA certification of the R66.Â We suspect that the same is being felt right across Europe.
We thus approached the manufacturer for a statement and they advised â€œWe are working with EASA to provide them with the information and testing they need to certify the R66. Â Robinson and EASA have met on several occasions, including in August at the factory for flight tests. Â However, Robinson cannot provide any expected approval dates as we have no authority to speak for EASA.â€
