Enstrom Continues to Deliver Royal Thai Army Aircraft



Enstrom Continues to Deliver Royal Thai Army Aircraft


Enstrom, December 12, 2011 - Menominee Mich. - Enstrom Helicopter Corporation recently shipped four new 480B turbine helicopters to Thailand. The helicopters are part of a program for 16 training/utility helicopters for the Royal Thai Army. Enstrom has already delivered six helicopters.

“This is an exciting time for Enstrom,” said Enstrom’s President & CEO, Jerry Mullins. “Although we’ve fulfilled orders for larger numbers of aircraft before, this shipment of four highly advanced 480Bs represents the single biggest shipment, dollar-wise, in Enstrom’s history. It’s a testament to the increase in capability and growth of the company.”

The 480Bs are being used by the RTA for pilot training, as well as utility missions. During the recent flooding in Thailand the new 480Bs were put to work for disaster relief efforts in the beleaguered city of Bangkok. “Our employees took great pride in the news that our helicopters were assisting the people of Thailand and making a difference,” said Mullins. “That’s why we build them.”

The latest shipment of 480Bs will arrive in Thailand in January and the remaining six aircraft are scheduled to ship the first quarter of 2012.

Enstrom is represented in Asia by Blake & DeJong Ltd., and in Thailand by M-Landarch Inc.

Founded in 1959, Enstrom Helicopter Corporation manufactures a complete line of helicopters. The three-seat, piston-powered F28F and 280FX are popular training, sport, and light commercial aircraft. The larger turbine-powered 480B is available as a three-place advanced trainer and patrol aircraft, or as a three to five place executive transport. For law enforcement applications Enstrom produces a specialized variant of the 480B, known as the Guardian, and the F28F, called the Sentinel.
