Base 4 Flight academy utilizes a fleet of Robinson R22s and Robinson R44s for Ab Initio and Hire and Fly. The R22 has a maximum manufacturer seat limitation of 109kgs.
As a company however, we try to limit this to 104kgs as the performance of the aircraft is limited for a training environment. For students heavier than this, we also make use of the R44 for Ab-Initio training. All piston Ab Initio training is completed on the Robinson aircraft. We then utilize Bell 206B3 Jetranger for initial turbine conversions and a BO105 for multi engine turbine ratings.
