The universities of North Dakota (UND) and Southern Utah (SUU) have each ordered an additional R44 Cadet helicopter from Robinson.

This will be UND’s second Cadet helicopter and SUU’s third. Both aircraft will be equipped for VFR and IFR training with a fully integrated glass cockpit featuring Garmin’s 1060 TXi touchscreen flight display, Garmin’s GTN navigator, and Garmin’s GTX 345 transponder with ADS-B In/Out.

Wes Van Dell, UND’s chief helicopter instructor, said: ‘We are very excited to add a second R44 Cadet to our fleet. Having evaluated the Cadet over the past year, we feel it is an outstanding aircraft for flight training. We are an all-weather flight school flying in conditions from 100°F in the summer to -25°F in the winter with winds as high as 30 knots. The Cadet’s performance has exceeded our expectations.’

Both aircraft are scheduled for delivery in September.
