Robinson’s R66 Turbine Marine Receives EASA Final Approval
5 January 2017
On December 20, 2016 EASA issued final approval for the R66 Turbine Marine pop-out float installation.
After tests conducted in July demonstrated the pop-out float installation meets Sea State 4 requirements, EASA officially approved the Marine to be used in emergency situations and for commercial operations. Sea State refers to the height, period, and character of waves on the surface of a large body of water. The tests were conducted in Spain at a facility capable of simulating the required conditions.
Robinson said that it is pleased with EASA’s decision and the company looks forward to expanding the Marine’s market throughout Europe.
