Enstrom Continues Christmas Tradition of Transporting Santa Claus

Santa and Enstrom

Enstrom recently participated in the local EAA chapter’s “Breakfast with Santa” at Menominee County Airport. The big man’s sleigh was in for some upgrades. While Santa was in town the local EAA chapter decided to invite local kids for breakfast and a visit with the Jolly Old Elf. Mr. Claus relied on an Enstrom 280FX to reach his destination. Vice President of Sales, Dennis Martin, expertly manned the helicopter’s controls to deliver Father Christmas in a safe, timely manner.

The children got to pose for pictures with Santa and build crafts together. On the way back, Santa told Dennis the flight was, “definitely my coolest gig ever.”
