Tim Tucker, Robinson Helicopter Company’s Chief Instructor and Claus Richter founder of Gyronimo Systems have teamed together to produce a series of new performance apps for the Robinson R22, R44 and R66. These new apps build on the already popular Robinson apps developed by Gyronimo Systems but add the insights and knowledge of Robinson’s well known Chief Instructor. Each app includes not only weight & balance and navigation calculations, but also all critical performance calculations such as Manifold Pressure, Vne and IGE/OGE limits.
A great new tool for students, instructors and professional pilots. Weight & Balance calculations have never been easier and faster.
With the Gyronimo Performance Pad you can calculate weight & balance, performance and navigation data in just a few seconds! It is designed specifically for the Robinson R22 Beta and Beta II (plus weight & balance for Astro, Alpha and Standard), and contains all necessary flight and performance data.
This version of the Performance Pad contains many explanations and special features for flight students.
Quickly change all important values using sliders! Compare Beta and Beta II OGE and IGE performance!
Calculate and compare Manifold Pressure and Never Exceed Speed Limits.
This enables students and flight instructors to experiment with the values and create "what if" scenarios in no time.
The Performance Pad has four main pages
1. Weight and Balance Page
Set person and baggage values in seconds using the convenient sliders. Select doors on/off and left controls in/out with switch-buttons. Check the CG within it's limits immediately and on the same page!
Sign the load manifest and send it as .pdf to your email address!
2. Performance Page
Using the data from your Weight & Balance page the pad calculates:
- Out of Ground Effect (OGE) ceiling
- In Ground Effect (IGE) ceiling
- Density Altitude
- Maximum Continuous Power (MCP)
- 5 minute take off power
- Never Exceed Speed (V ne)
3. Flight Time Page
- Calibrated and True Airspeed
- True and Magnetic Course
- Wind Correction Angle (WCA)
- Compass Heading
- Ground Speed
- Flight Time for a specific distance
4. Helicopter Page
Here you have access to the helicopter's specific data
- Main and Tail Rotor dimensions and
- Power Plant and Fuel
- Airspeed and other limitations
- Change units from US gallons / lbs to Kg/Liter.
Whether you are a professional pilot, student or flight instructor, we are sure that you will benefit from the possibilities of this revolutionary flight computer.
