On December 20, 2016 EASA issued final approval for the R66 Turbine Marine pop-out float installation. After tests conducted in July demonstrated the pop-out float installation meets Sea State 4 requirements, EASA officially approved the Marine to be used in emergency situations and for commercial operations.

Sea State refers to the height, period, and character of waves on the surface of a large body of water. The tests were conducted in Spain at a facility capable of simulating the required conditions.

Robinson is pleased with EASA’s decision and looks forward to expanding the Marine’s market throughout Europe. Founded in 1973, Robinson Helicopter Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of civil helicopters. For additional information, visit www.robinsonheli.com.
