Frank Robinson Retires

Last weekend it was announced that Frank Robinson has retired. The company was his baby. He founded it and ran it with firm hands up until very recently. It is due to his strong control and demands of safety above all that the R22 and the R44 have been so well made and such a success in the helicopter field. He will be missed.

Here is a link from the official Robinson Helicopter Co. press release.

Frank is well regarded as a great employer running a fine place to work. They give weekly tours of the Torrance factory, or at least they used to.

There is an Interview of Kurt Robinson in Rotorcraft Pro by Steve Goldsmith where Kurt mentions that they are expanding the plant. No mention of Frank's retirement or Kurt's assuming the leadership. But then the magazine went to press before the announcement.
