My first Robinson

Today arrived at Madeira the "new" Heliatlantis helicopter, replacing the CS-HCY (an Ecureuil)

The "new" helicopter is a Robinson R44, operated by Helibravo.
DN had publish a few days ago that it would arrive today by sea so, after leaving work made a quick stop at the entrance of the Funchal Port (local of operations for Heliatlantis) to see if it was already there...

Yes, there it was...it was the first time I put eyes on one of these and my first impression was that it was kind of an R/C Helicopter....lol

Not much light but here's a first pic just for the record, let's see if this weekend I can get some airborn pics...

  1. I guess you liked the name of the helicopter (Robinson), more than the helicopter itself.

    The CS-HEU pass through my house yesterday for at least a couple of times heading Curral das Freiras in the late afternoon...
