Enstrom receives New Zealand type certificate for F-28F, 280FX and 480B

Menominee, Michigan – Enstrom Helicopter Corporation was granted New Zealand Type Acceptance for its Enstrom F-28/280/480 series of helicopters by the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand in September.

“The Enstrom helicopters, with their rugged features and great safety record are a perfect fit for New Zealand,” said Dennis Martin, Director of Marketing and Sales. “The three bladed, fully articulated rotor system is a good choice for the windy conditions & mountainous terrain.”

Enstrom piston aircraft have been operating successfully in New Zealand for many years, however, this latest Type Acceptance updates to the latest certification on those aircraft and also approves Enstrom’s turbine powered 480B for operation in New Zealand.

“We are very excited about introducing the 480B to New Zealand,” commented Martin. “Already the first 480B is on its way from the US, and we look forward to customers there getting a chance to see what a modern, cost effective turbine Enstrom can do.”

Enstrom’s entire product line is currently certified in over 40 countries including the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
