Do you have a high Total Time R22, R44 (or R66) that will need overhauling in the first part of the new year?  If you are approaching the magic 2200 hour line, please consider that on January 15th of each year Robinson Helicopter Company has traditionally  incorporated parts pricing increases to the tune of 2.5-3% and there is no indication that the coming year will be any different.  You can get ahead of the game!

Even if your estimated overhaul date is scheduled after the anticipated January 15th price increase, the current lead time on kits is 6-8 weeks from the factory- and there is usually a last minute rush of orders that may contribute to a longer wait.  Additionally, depending on your accounting method, there may be some tax planning benefits to ordering & paying for your kit in 2011 while receiving the order in the next calendar and tax year- please consult your tax professional for advice in this area. 

S0 what does a 2.5-3% increase look like to the average overhaul kit parts cost? We have provided the handy reference below showing the typical overhaul kit, engine build up kit, core fee (refundable) for 2011 along with the anticipate 2012 prices and the estimated savings to operators who order now.
