These are three words that describe what has made the two-seat R22 the world's most popular entry-level helicopter for nearly two decades.
The R22 holds major performance records in its weight class including speed and distance. And the latest R22 Beta II is still sensibly priced with the industry's lowest cost of operation.
The Lycoming O-360 engine is derated to 131 horsepower for take-off and 124 for cruise, giving the engine long life and unmatched reliability.

The instrument panel includes low fuel warning light, main gearbox temperature and chip lights, tail gearbox chip light, low oil pressure light, engine fire light, low voltage alternator light, low RPM warning light and horn, plus rotor brake and starter engaged warning lights.
No more throttle twisting; precision- engineered governor automatically controls engine RPM during all normal operations.
Allows the pilot to stop the rotor quickly, greatly reducing shutdown time and the risk of injury to ground personnel or passengers.

Ergonomic grips incorporate two-position trigger switches for intercom and transmit. Grips also have buttons for convenient storing and switching COMM frequencies.
Automatic Clutch Engagement.
Simplifies startup procedure and reduces the possibility of an overspeed.

Enhances safety and reduces pilot workload by automatically adding carb heat when the collective is lowered and reducing carb heat when the collective is raised.
Teflon-lined, elastomeric, and sealed bearings eliminate most periodic lubrication requirements.
Primary controls are actuated by maintenance- free bellcranks and push-pull tubes, eliminating the need for control cables and pulleys.
The dependable Lycoming O-360 engine is derated to 131 horsepower for take-off and 124 for cruise, giving the engine long life and unmatched reliability.
Patented Rotor Design.
Robinson's patented tri-hinge rotor eliminates lag hinges, dampers, and hydraulic struts. Stainless steel main rotor blades resist corrosion and have thick leading edges to minimize erosion.
Maintenance-free flexible couplings are used in place of universal joints or gear couplings in the main and tail drive systems.
No scheduled maintenance other than oil changes are required between 100-hour inspections.
2200 hours or twelve years approved time-between-overhaul period for the R22 engine and airframe. All life-limited components have approved service lives of at least 2200 hours.
Easy Ground Handling.
Light empty weight allows easy manual ground handling by one person. A convenient tow cart adaptor is also provided for use with the Robinson Electric Tow Cart.
Off Airport Landings.
Highmounted tail rotor and raised exhaust provide an added margin of safety at off-airport destinations.
Two-Bladed Main Rotor.
Requires onlyone-third as much hangar space as a multi-bladed rotor.
Low Noise Level.
Heavy-duty muffler and low tail rotor tip speed make the R22 a "community friendly," quiet helicopter. Thick acoustical foam achieves surprisingly low cabin noise levels.
Ample Baggage Compartments.
Both seats hinge up for access to concealed storage areas for carry-on bags, briefcases, supplies, and other belongings. A custom Robinson travel bag is standard equipment with new R22s.
Heating and Ventilation.
Fresh air vents in the cabin nose and each door provide generous ventilation for pilot and passenger. The optional heater distributes heat during cold weather operations. T-Bar Cyclic. Robinson's patented cyclic design eliminates uncomfortable stick between knees and eases cabin entry and exit.
Voice-Activated Intercom Standard.
A high-quality voice-activated intercom eliminates the need to use intercom switches during doors-on flights. Floor and hand intercom switches are included for doors-off operations
Comfortable seating for two with wide, unobstructed views. Large windows in each door allow clear sideward visibility from both seats.
