Offshore Logistics with Rotor

Missions / Offshore

Deliver cargo to offshore assets 24 hours a day for considerably less than multi-engine turbine helicopter costs. Keep flight crews safe and preserve larger aircraft for personnel transport.

Overview

Developed in consultation with the offshore energy community, the R550X offers a substantial safety benefit. It has the range to reach deep offshore rigs while carrying a full payload of 1,212 lbs (550 kg), in the most challenging weather conditions. This capability allows larger crewed aircraft to stay available for personnel transport, while the R550X provides 24/7 cargo transport.

Benefits

Fast dispatch

The R550X cruises at helicopter speeds (109 kts) to deliver your critical cargo where it needs to go much faster than an OSV to keep platforms humming. It can be dispatched from base in just a few minutes.

Unmatched range and payload for UAS

With 1,212 lbs (550 kg) of payload capacity and 350 nm of range, the R550X can reach any offshore asset with reserves. Not only does it carry payloads normally reserved for ships, but it arrives hours before a ship could.

Confident night and IFR flight

Night flying or storms are no longer an obstacle to flight operations. The R550X uses multiple cameras, LIDAR, and other sensors to operate safely in inclement weather.


Airspace integration

The R550X flies and communicates like a traditional crewed helicopter, allowing for seamless integration into offshore airspace.
