There has been a lot of buzz about Robinson Helicopter’s new R44 Cadet.

The company announced is it now taking orders on the latest model. The new two-seat helicopter started at nearly $340,000, with a required non-refundable deposit of $40,000.

This design has more cargo space, but is slightly less powerful than the R44 Raven I. The R44 Cadet’s airframe and rotor system are the same as the Raven I.

Robinson is headquartered in Torrance and has been producing helicopters since 1979.

Robinson will display the R44 Cadet at the Helicopter Association International’s Heli-Expo in Kentucky next week.
