Enstrom Helicopter Corporation at Join Oconto Elks Fly-In


Enstrom Helicopter Corporation celebrated Oconto, Wisconsin’s high-flying heritage at the Oconto County Elks Fly-In on September 16 at the J. Douglas Bake Municipal Airport (KOCQ). Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dennis Martin, flew into Oconto in a 480B helicopter. Enstrom’s rotorcraft joined nearly three dozen other aircraft and more than 200 classic automobiles. Flyovers took place throughout the event.

Enstrom leaders were able to use this as an opportunity to bolster brand awareness in the Northeast Wisconsin area. Martin was joined by President Todd Tetzlaff to help promote the Enstrom brand and interact with attendees who might have questions.

“We’re in the midst of a massive recruitment campaign with immediate openings for skilled engineers, managers, and mechanics,” said Tetzlaff. “As a company, we were thankful for the chance to share the Enstrom story and attract new talent so we can expand our production capacity. We had hiring signs, but our biggest attractor certainly proved to be the 480B helicopter itself!”

Fly-in guests also took part in an array of family-friendly activities and experiences, including radio-controlled electric planes, a recreated World War II-era military encampment, bungee-bouncing, face painting, and more. Local craft vendors were out selling their wares, and a wide variety of food and drinks were available for purchase.

Oconto is located approximately halfway between Menominee, Michigan and Green Bay, Wisconsin.
