N883WR Robinson helicopter, r44 RavEn II

Robinson's R44 Raven Series Helicopters provide excellent reliability, responsive handling, and altitude performance, making the R44 the ideal helicopter for private, business, and utility applications.

The high performance R44 Raven II has a Lycoming IO-540 fuel-injected, angle-valve, tuned-induction engine, which eliminates the need for carburetor heat. The standard 28-volt electrical system ensures good starting performance in hot or cold weather, and provides additional electrical power for optional equipment.

The R44 Raven II can be equipped with specifically designed instruments and avionics to prepare and qualify IFR pilots at a fraction of the cost associated with larger, more expensive instrument-equipped helicopters, but with the same high-quality equipment.
