The Robinson R66 is a light utility and trainer helicopter designed and manufactured by Robinson Helicopter Company. The R66 was derived as a turbine powered version of the predecessing piston-engine R44. The aircraft was installed with a Rolls-Royce RR300 turboshaft engine, which was more compact and lightweight than the previously used Lycoming engine. The firm had ensured the aircraft remains low-cost when it comes to acquisition, operating and maintenance. The aircraft remains successful as a training helicopter, and in production to this day.
