The R22 became the world’s top selling civil helicopter soon after its introduction. Due to relatively low acquisition and operating costs, it has been popular as a primary rotorcraft trainer around the world and as a livestock management tool on large ranches in North America and Cattle stations in Australia.

When choosing a helicopter, you need to know how you will be using your helicopter and where you will be flying.
R22 Beta II
If you planning to use the helicopter for mostly personal use and local flying, your best option could be a R22 Beta II. While they are slower than R44 and can only hold one passenger, they are less expensive to own and operate. The R22 can be ideal for someone who needs to hop around from one job site to another quickly and efficiently or for recreational flying.
The low operating costs have also made the R22 very popular for training. Most flight schools, including Las Vegas Helicopter Training -

R44 Clipper and Clipper II
The last two models of the R44 are the Clipper and Clipper II. Simply put, the Clippers are R44 Ravens with floats. If you will be operating over areas with lots of water you will definitely want a Clipper model.
WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE?
Your cost can be estimated by using the Robinson configurator. You can pick your options to get a basic idea of your bottom line. After using the configurator to decide options, please call us to get an exon price.
WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?
There are several different options which you can choose on the configurator. The most important option is between the Raven II and Clipper II. Since the Raven II is the only model that can have air conditioning, you cannot have a R44 with both air conditioning and floats. This can be a very important decision for people who live in hot climates near water (Florida).
WHAT IS THE OPERATING COST?
Estimated operating costs can be found on Robinson's website.
