Via CRAN: ...At less than $150K we are into performance car money and there is a market for 100,000's of those per year and lots of professional and small business owners are willing to spend that kind of money...
As others have suggested, perhaps its time for a Chinese or Indian company to buy the rights to the tried and true Hughes 300 (and later derivatives) and produce a cheap Helicopter. Useless Sit-Orsky ain't doing much with it..

Only 11 Cadet built in the first 6 months of the year, that's not a lot.
And at the same time, 20 R22 built, that's more than the full last year !

It's simply too expensive! There is nowhere near a big enough differential between the Cadet and Raven 1.

Dumbest idea, ever. The Cadet does make me wish the rear seats were removable in the Raven for occasional bulk cargo, though.

Yeah, the Cadet is the Robinson version of the Cabri. Let's make training more expensive,...great idea!

Theres nothing safer, lower operational cost or more robust about a Cadet.....

Better off buying a standard Raven 1, at least the school can use it for other purposes such as hire and fly etc.
The Cabri is a superior aircraft in almost every way compared to the 22 and while it may cost more, the long term maintenance due to on condition parts will make it more cost effective to operate than the initial cost alone would indicate.
(Provided it makes the hours before a student forgets how the tail works)
