Sloane Helicopters celebrates its 500th new Robinson Helicopter

Published: 5th March 2019

As Europe’s longest-established dealer for the Robinson Helicopter Company, Sloane Helicopters will soon be taking delivery of its 500th new Robinson helicopter – R44 Raven II S/N 14297. This significant milestone highlights the successful partnership between Sloane and Robinson, reflecting Sloane’s dedication and expertise in supporting the full range of Robinson helicopters.

Kurt Robinson commented,

“Robinson has enjoyed an excellent relationship with David George and Sloane Helicopters since Frank [Robinson] and David first met in the mid ‘70s. Sloane’s professionalism, support, and enthusiasm for not only the R22, but also the R44, and R66 greatly contribute to Robinson’s success.”   

David George, Sloane Helicopters’ founder and Chairman states

“Sloane is proud to have worked closely with Robinson for over forty years. As the first Robinson Dealer in Europe, we identified that the market would strongly appreciate the R22 helicopter. Since then, we have introduced and supported the full range of Robinson helicopters and the great success we have experienced is down to the exceptional flying, safety and build qualities of Robinson Helicopters. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Robinson and celebrating future milestones in the coming years.”

With three orders already confirmed for delivery in 2019, Sloane is looking forward to another successful year following on from the 12 new Robinson helicopters delivered in 2018. Sloane Helicopters was appointed an authorised Robinson Dealer and Service Centre in 1976 and brought the first Robinson R22 into the UK in 1979.  For more information, please contact Sloane Helicopters on +44 (0)1604 790595 or at info@sloanehelicopters.com.
