Last year Robinson Helicopter manufactured 162 helicopters, down from a peak annual production of 893 just two years earlier. It was the lowest annual production rate for Robinson since 1987. This year the company anticipates it will make 300 helicopters. The total includes an estimated three-per-month production of the newly certified R66 turbine single.
