The R44 is a single-engined helicopter with a semi-rigid two-bladed main rotor and a two-bladed tail rotor and a skid landing gear. The Raven II’s distinctive aerodynamic design allows a high cruise speed up to 130 mph and an average fuel consumption of only 12 to 16 gallons per hour. The dependable Lycoming O-540 engine is derated from 260 to 225 HP (225 HP for take-off) for long life and reliability.
The cabin offers comfortable two-plus-two seating with removable dual controls and no bulkhead or post between the front and rear seats, assuring exceptional visibility and panoramic views for the pilot and up to three passengers. Helicentre Aviation is delighted to offer the R44 for training, self-fly-hire or charter. Please call us on 0116 259 0186 for further information.
