Robinson Helicopter Crash Stats

Robinson helicopters have been involved in hundreds of fatal accidents and incidents since the company delivered its first helicopter in 1979. According to government data*, as of June 9, 2023, Robinson R22, R44, and R66 models have been involved in approximately 1,659 aviation accidents or incidents globally. Of these, 412 were fatal crashes.

  • Robinson R22 crashes – 985 total incidents; 177 fatal.
  • Robinson R44 crashes – 623 total incidents; 212 fatal.
  • Robinson R66 crashes – 51 total incidents; 23 fatal.

* Data current as of June 9, 2023. In October of 2020, NTSB changed its data search tool to the Case Analysis and Reporting Online (known as the CAROL query system). The CAROL system currently includes accident data going back to 1983. Because the Robinson R22 was released in 1979, the total accidents for that model are underrepresented.
