    Robinson Helicopter Training | ULA

    Helicopter training at Upper Limit Aviation is achieved using Robinson piston engine aircraft and Bell turbine aircraft.   A FAR 141 approved Fly-It® simulated flight training device for instrument training is available as well.Our Robinson helicopters used for training are owned, operated, and maintained by Upper Limit Aviation.  They meet the requirements of FAR 141.39.


    Robinson Piston Engine Helicopter Training

    As one of the most popular manufacturer of helicopters, Robinson helicopters is the fastest growing training helicopter due to their cost effectiveness, safety standards, and performance capabilities. By training at high altitude in Robinson helicopters, our students learn the importance of weight-and-balance, and density altitude (DA).

    To teach, or to perform a flight review in a Robinson R22, an SFAR 73 awareness training and 200 hours of helicopter time is required, with 50 of those being in an R22. As an industry standard for training, obtaining the necessary hours in a Robinson helicopter prepares students as future instructors within a competitive field.

    Facts About Robinson Helicopters

    The Robinson Helicopter is flown throughout the world for many applications, ranging from flight training to livestock mustering to patrolling pipelines, that require dependability, low operating costs, and performance.

    The Robinson R22 seats two adults and occupants have panoramic views due to R22's large windows. Robinson R44 seats four adult occupants and enjoy the same panoramic view. Acoustical foam in the Robinson aircraft lowers cabin noise. The Robinson Helicopters have a powerful engine, a lightweight steel-tube airframe, and aerodynamic shape gives the R22 a cruise speed of up to 90 kts and an average fuel consumption of only 7-10 gallons per hour.
