Looks fa­mil­iar

Pilot - - NEW REGS -

The Robin­son R22 Beta once reigned supreme as the two-seat civil he­li­copter trainer of choice but it has been dis­placed in re­cent times by newer op­tions such as the Cabri G2. To counter this, Robin­son has con­verted its four-seat Raven into a two-seat trainer called the R44 Cadet and G-CLBM is the first UK ex­am­ple. The rear seats have been re­moved for bag­gage space, and the en­gine de-rated.

Mov­ing in the op­po­site di­rec­tion, from two seats to four, G-CKZX in­tro­duces the lat­est ver­sion of the Gla­sair Glas­tar high-wing, com­pos­ite-and-metal two-seat tourer. This was en­larged to the Glas­tar Sports­man 2+2 and now fur­ther with the Max-4.
