Robinson Breaks Own Production Record

Robinson Helicopter Company of Torrence, Calif. reports that it still holds the record as the world’s leading manufacturer of civil helicopters. The privately owned company produced a record 893 piston helicopters in 2008; 70 more than the record it set in 2007 with 823 units. Robinson builds two general models, the 2-seat R22 and the 4-place R44, the latter of the two accounting for 60 of the company's helicopter sales. A turbine-powered R66 is currently under development. For company information
