On January 3rd 2020, a Robinson R66 Turbine helicopter landed and took off at Three Thirty airstrip in Ronda, south Cebu, Philippines.
This helicopter was hired by a family of four on their Cebu Mactan International Airport. They saved a lot of time compared to going to the city by car or van and they also got to do a bit of sightseeing from the sky on the way.
A little bit about the R66 Turbine:
The five-seat R66 Turbine helicopter is reliable, economical and easy to maintain. R66s have a two-bladed rotor system, T-bar cyclic and the latest in Robinson technology including streamlined instrument panels, energy absorbing seats and crashworthy bladder fuel tanks. What distinguishes the R66 is a spacious 300 lb capacity baggage compartment and the Rolls Royce RR300 turboshaft engine. The RR300 engine operates on readily available Jet A fuel and offers increased reserve power, additional payload and improved altitude performance. Hydraulic controls eliminate feedback forces and provide responsive handling.
