Nearing its first anniversary as a Robinson Helicopter Dealer and Service Center, Precision Aviation Services (PAS), a Precision Aviation Group Company (PAG), has already sold 11 helicopters, surpassing the first-year requirement to sell eight. The majority of the helicopters PAG sold were Robinson’s newest, largest and most powerful helicopter, the R66, which is the manufacturer’s first turbine-powered model.
“PAG is proud to be one of only 20 companies in the U.S. authorized to sell and service Robinson’s R66,” says PAS President Adrienne Robinson (no relation to the Robinson Helicopter company). “We’ve found that owners of Robinson helicopters often become repeat purchasers because they like the strong combination of reasonable pricing, high performance and low operating costs. And when a customer wants to move up from the R22 or the R44 models to a larger, more powerful helicopter, the R66 allows them to step up and stay within the Robinson line.”
“The R22 and R44 have outsold the combined totals of all other helicopter manufacturer sales in the world annually,” says Les Gillespie, head of Robinson Helicopter sales for PAS. “Now the addition of the R66 to the line gives PAG’s broad customer base including private, corporate, emergency medical and law enforcement pilots and operators a wider range of choices.”
PAS sells and services R22, R44 and R66 model Robinson Helicopters at its facility located at Falcon Field at the Atlanta Regional Airport (KFFC) in Peachtree City, Ga. PAS also performs avionics installs/upgrades, airframe maintenance and MRO services for a variety of fixed and rotary wing aircraft in addition to Robinson.
