Torrance, CA—2010 marked a year of transition for Robinson Helicopter Company. During the first half of the year, the company worked to move unsold inventory created by the unstable economy. By mid-year, the inventory was gone and the company saw a surge in new sales. Production was ramped-up as orders steadily increased most notably in the third and fourth quarters. By the end of the year, Robinson had accumulated a backlog of 169 new orders. Total production for the year was 162 aircraft (40) R22s, (112) R44s and (10) R66s.
With the newly certificated R66 and a rapidly growing backlog, Robinson’s focus for 2011 will be production and product development.
