    Enstrom TH180 Second Prototype


    Enstrom, May 31, 2016 - Menominee, MI - On May 26th, Enstrom resumed flight testing of the TH-180 with the second prototype, Helicopter N181TH.

    The TH-180 took to the air under control of Enstrom test pilot and Senior Technical Fellow, William Taylor.

    Taylor took the aircraft through a standard production-type acceptance, including all the hover and forward flight checks such as tracking and rigging checks.

    “It flies great.” said Taylor, “Now we can resume certification. The market needs a robust, forgiving trainer.”

    Enstrom’s third TH-180 flight test vehicle is in production with completion expected this summer.

    With two aircraft flying, Enstrom is focused on an accelerated certification flight test schedule.
