Platinum’s R44 Overhaul Preparation
As of last week, we are officially proud owners of a Robinson R44! Our 44 isn’t ready yet to fly as it is timed out and in need of a full overhaul, but this Platinum Helicopters LLC R44 will be as good as new, if not better. We are expecting this aircraft to be ready in the Spring for helicopter lessons for our students and of course for our tour customers to enjoy. We are really looking forward to having another R44 added to our helicopter fleet here at Platinum Helicopters in Princeton, New Jersey. With a hard day of work last week and lots of help from our Platinum Helicopters Instructors and a couple Students, we were able to get the rotor blades off of the helicopter and place the 44 on a trailer to be towed to our mechanic in Quakertown, PA. Check out some of the photos attached below! The helicopter arrived last week to our Mechanic and we delivered the blades on Sunday.
