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.
