Robinson R22 Beta / Beta II


Mountain View Helicopters uses the Robinson 22 Beta and Beta II for most of its primary training. The R22 has become the most popular training helicopter in North America. The skill required to master the controls of the R22 helps students become proficient pilots who are able to transition to other types of helicopters with relative ease. It is also our most cost-effective way to obtain a commercial helicopter license.
