Robinson R44 Cadet (G-OCAF) from Heli Air at the RIAT 2019, RAF Fairford (United Kingdom)
The Robinson R44 is a four-seat light helicopter produced by Robinson Helicopter Company since 1992 and is based at Zamperini Field in Torrance, California (United States). Based on the company's two-seat Robinson R22, the R44 features hydraulically assisted flight controls. It was first flown on 31 March 1990 and received FAA certification in December 1992, with the first delivery in February 1993. The R44 has been the world's best-selling general aviation helicopter every year since 1999. It is the most-produced general aviation aircraft of the 21st century, with 6331 deliveries from 2000–2020. During November 2015 Robinson announced the Cadet, a Raven I with a cargo area instead of the two back seats, a slightly less powerful engine and a more efficient muffler.
