The Future of Enstrom
It‘s been quite an interesting summer at Enstrom! This time last year our corporate campus was very quiet, but this year it’s humming with activity and has come back to life! As of today we officially have 86 employees spread out among all departments, including the factory floor.
And on the floor we currently have two helicopters under construction! We’re planning on showing those first two models off the line at the HAI expo next year. But those will only be the first helicopters of many more. It might be a crazy goal, but we are aiming to build more than 20 aircraft in 2023! We know it’ll be tough, and it’s going to take a lot of sweat and grit to get to that number, but we’re confident we can get there if we continue as we have been doing this year!
Speaking of HAI, we currently have our booth almost ready to go into production for the show. We’ve been working with several vendors on designs so stay tuned for future news on how this will look. And that’s not the only event/trade show we’re planning to be at this year and next. This year we’ll also be at APOA in Tampa and next summer EAA.
We’ve also restarted our piston and turbine maintenance training starting October 24 and 31. Click here if you’re interested in learning more/taking one of these I.A. renewal accredited classes.
Over the last few months we’ve received a lot of correspondence from fellow helicopter enthusiasts, dealers, and the media asking about us now, and the future of Enstrom. Well, as you can see our future’s looking bright and limitless!
Just wait to see what we have in store in 2023!
