Valair, the distributor for Robinson Helicopter Co in Switzerland, has recently delivered the tenth R66 now flying in the mountainous European country. Eight of these ten delivered new by Valair, with the other two bought pre-owned from the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom.
The latest example is serial 0728 and is the first R66 in Switzerland with an autopilot. It is now registered HB-ZWK and painted in a dark grey scheme with the R66 standard stripes in burgundy. The Swiss registration authority BAZL shows the helicopter owned by Hans Rudolf Keller at an address in Winterthur, the country’s sixth largest city.
Apart from Valair themselves, R66s are also operated in Switzerland by Heli Sitterdorf, Mountain Flyers 80, Swift Copters, Fuchs Helikopter and Heli Alpin.
