Dealer for the Robinson Helicopter Company, Sloane Helicopter is celebrating its 500th order of the R44 Raven II S/N 14297 – Robinson’s new helicopter – and is expected to make the delivery very soon.

Following the 12 new Robinson helicopters which Sloane delivered in 2018, it already has three orders confirmed for delivery in 2019; the milestone ‘500’ marks a continuing and successful partnership between Sloane and Robinson.

Sloane Helicopters was appointed an authorised Robinson Dealer and Service Centre in 1976 and brought the first Robinson R22 into the UK in 1979. Kurt Robinson, President and Chairman of Robinson Helicopter Company, said: “Sloane’s professionalism, support, and enthusiasm for, not only the R22, but also the R44 and R66, greatly contribute to Robinson’s success.”

Founder and Chairman of Sloane Helicopters David George said: “Sloane is proud to have worked closely with Robinson for over 40 years. As the first Robinson Dealer in Europe, we identified that the market would strongly appreciate the R22 helicopter. Since then, we have introduced and supported the full range of Robinson helicopters and the great success we have experienced is down to the exceptional flying, safety and build qualities of Robinson Helicopters. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Robinson and celebrating future milestones in the coming years.”
