Aerobility has received a donation of over £500 from Heli Air www.heliair.com, the UK’s leading authorised distributor of Robinson Helicopters. Heli Air recently held a launch party for the Robinson R66 Helicopter, raffling a seat in its first demo flight to raise money in support of Aerobility.
Heli Air’s R66 launch event took place on 19th February at the company’s Wycombe Air Park centre and was attended by around 1,000 aviation industry professionals and enthusiasts.
The weather was typical for February in the UK, cold and wet, however the atmosphere inside the hangar was certainly warm and much fun was had by all as the great food and wine was enjoyed whilst listening to a great band "Licensed to Swing". Being part of the unveiling was a real thrill, and for Aerobility to be mentioned in the launch speech was a real privilege.
MD Sean Brown gave a great demonstration of the capabilities of the helicopter, quite a feat considering the weather. It certainly is a very impressive machine, noticeably quieter and more powerful than the R44.
Thanks once again to all at Heli Air.
