Robinson Helicopter’s production for 2012 was 517 helicopters – 191 R66s, 286 R44s and 40 R22s, a 45% increase over 2011’s production of 356. As in previous years, the majority of those sales (70%) went to foreign customers.

Based on the backlog of new orders, Robinson anticipates 2013’s production numbers to surpass 2012’s. The current production rate is set at twelve aircraft per week and with its workforce numbering more than 1300, the company is well positioned to increase production later in the year.

Founded in 1973, Robinson Helicopter Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of civil helicopters. For additional information, visit www.robinsonheli.com.
