FOR EXPERIMENTAL ROBINSON R22 HELICOPTERS


About Our Robinson R22 Rotor Blades

Our Robinson main and tail rotor blades are for use with R22 helicopters that have been re-classified in the experimental category. They are formed of carbon composite and have an unlimited service life, but it is recommended that they be sent to the factory for inspection every 1,000 hours. They have a protective outer layer of gel coat. The root-end mounting will fit the standard R22 rotor hub (blade set does not include spindles or bearings).

In February, 2019, durability tests were performed at the Institute of Aviation in Europe on the carbon-composite blades for the R22 in the experimental category.

The rotor blades withstood a force of 28 tons, which is 3 times greater than the required safety minimum! In fact, at 28 tons the only damage was to the metal part and not the carbon-composite rotor blades themselves.
