The Robinson R22 is flown throughout the world for many applications ranging from flight training and livestock mustering to patrolling pipelines.

The R22 incorporates a Lycoming O-360 four-cylinder engine. This powerful engine, a lightweight steel-tube airframe, and aerodynamic shape gives the R22 a cruise speed of up to 90 kts. The R22 seats two adults and occupants have panoramic views due to R22's large windows. Acoustic foam lowers cabin noise. A heavy-duty muffler and low tail-rotor tip speed lessen flyover noise.

The Robinson R44 is a four-seat light helicopter which is based on the R22. The R44’s open configuration provides unobstructed views from all seats, it can take up to 3 adult passengers. A lightweight airframe and aerodynamic fuselage optimize airspeed and fuel economy, while the aircraft’s low tail-rotor tip speed, heavy duty muffler, and large cambered tail decrease flyover noise. The R44 can cruise up to a speed of 115kts.

Whether for corporate transportation, EMS, offshore oil and gas rig support, law enforcement or fire fighting, the Bell 206 has what it takes to accomplish the mission.

The Bell 206 features a high-inertia two-bladed rotor system, while the patented suspension system delivers an incredibly smooth ride. The Bell 206 can hold up to four passengers very comfortably.

The multipurpose, single-engine AS350 B2, powered by a 732 shp (546 kW) Turbomeca Arriel 1D1 engine, has an outstanding proven track record.

Its flexibility make it a very sought-after helicopter capable of performing a wide range of missions, including passenger transportation, aerial work, training, observation, fire fighting, and law enforcement, among others.

The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (unofficially Huey) is a ex military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine with a two-bladed main rotor and tail rotor. The helicopter was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the United States Army's requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter in 1952. It was made famous for its operations in Vietnam. Its many roles can include heavy aerial lifting work, fire fighting, flood relief, mining support, power-line stringing, pole insertion and search and rescue operations.
