  • ProductionTypical seating for two side by side.

This arrangement of light two seat aerobatic air ship was outlined amid the 1970s particularly for flying school use, and has been produced in two significant variations, both of which are back in creation.

The first HR 200 was the second all metal flying machine intended for Robin by Christophe Heintz (past Robins had been composed by Jean Delemontez, who was additionally in charge of the prior Jodel arrangement). It first flew on July 19 1971 controlled by a 80kw (108hp) O235, while the first creation air ship flew in April 1973.

Three beginning variants were constructed, the 80kw (108hp) fueled Club or HR 200/100, the all the more compelling Acrobin 125 or HR 200/125 (with a 95kw/125hp O235) and the Acrobin 160 or HR 200/160 (with a 120kw/160hp Io320). The HR 200 stayed in creation until the late 1970s, and is by and by on offer. Robin has now recommenced creation of the HR 200/120 as the Robin 200, with force supplied by a 88kw (118hp) Textron Lycoming O235l2a and another instrument board.

The R 2000 Alpha arrangement in the interim was a redevelopment of the HR 200. The HR 200's essential fuselage was held, yet changes incorporated an all new wing and a developed rudder and vertical tail to enhance turning qualities. The model R 2000 was controlled by a 135kw (160hp) Io320 and flew shockingly on January 15 1976. Conveyances of generation flying machine started in 1977.

Three advancements of the R 2000 arrangement were constructed, the R 2100, the R 2112 and R 2160 Alpha Sport, with the principle contrasts between the three being the powerplant fitted. The R 2100 is fueled by a 80kw (108hp) O235, the R 2112 has a 84kw (112hp) O235, and the R 2160 has a 120kw (160hp) O320. Of the three, the R 2160 Alpha Sport has been the most prominent. Creation of the R 2000 arrangement (by Robin plants in France and Canada) initially stopped in 1983, however Robin restarted generation of the R 2160 in 1994.
