Robinson Offers Rebate on Fuel Bladder Retrofit

With the April 30, 2013 deadline for retrofitting bladder-style fuel tanks into R44s and R44 IIs, Robinson Helicopters is offering rebates through Dec. 31 of this year as an incentive to get the job done soon.

Under the rebate program, R44 and R44 II owners who purchase and install the retrofit kit (Robinson KI-196-1 and KI-196-2, respectively) before Dec. 31, 2012, will receive a $1,000 rebate.

The retrofit is required by a service bulletin (SB-78A) Robinson issued in 2010 and revised in September of this year. It calls for the original aluminum fuel tanks to be replaced with main and auxiliary bladder tanks.
