ROBINSON: LOOKING FOR MORE POWER
TORRANCE, CALIFORNIA, According to Robinson president, Frank Robinson "we have almost completed the search for a more powerful engine". Robinson said that the adoption of a turboshaft on his heicopters will carry no advantages, as the first cause of the R-22 and R-44 helicopters success is the low acquisition price. R-22 is currently priced at 156,000 USD, and R-44 Raven at 299.000 USD.
