Heli Air is the UK distributor for the Robinson R66, and we can offer excellent packages for you including:

G500H Avionics Display System – improving situational awareness / significantly reducing risk

The G500H is a combination of Primary Flight Display and Multifunction Display (PFD/MFD) that provides flight instrument, moving map navigation and situational awareness information on dual screens.

Installed in the R66 within a new, purpose designed instrument panel that also retains all required traditional instruments, the dual 6.5″ LCD screens provide attitude, airspeed, altitude, climb rate and course/heading information along with detailed moving-map graphics showing the helicopter’s current position in relation to ground features, chart data, navaids and flight plan routings.

A Garmin GTN 750 GPS / Com navigator is required with the G500H and is installed just below the PFD/MFD on the new instrument panel within easy reach of either pilot seat.

HeliSAS Autopilot and Stability Augmentation System – improving safety / reducing workload

Once equipped with Garmin G500H system, the HeliSAS autopilot may also be added to European R66s.

In its primary mode, the autopilot functions as a stability augmentation system by applying corrective inputs to the cyclic in order to maintain fixed pitch and roll attitude. Only light force on the cyclic is required to override or “fly through” the system, so it can be left engaged continuously while still allowing the pilot to manoeuvre comfortably. Additional autopilot modes are heading hold, altitude hold, navigation signal tracking (VOR or GPS) and approach navigation (including vertical guidance). The autopilot does not provide any collective or pedal inputs.
