Employee Spotlight: Kevin Braasch

Kevin Braasch

Hi, my name is Kevin Braasch, and I work in the glass and fiberglass department.

You don’t have to spend much time looking to find my contribution to an Enstrom helicopter. I help shape each and every cabin window. Let me pull back the curtain and tell you a bit of our process. Our team begins by heating a large sheet of clear plexiglass. We then set it securely on a form matching the helicopter model, and together, press down hard. To create the signature “bubble” look, we then pump air in through a hose. The results are terrific! I also help build the doors and form all the plastic pieces you’ll find inside.

So, the next time you’re flying high in your Enstrom rotorcraft, taking in a gorgeous aerial view, you can thank my team for your crystal-clear sightseeing.

This month marks my 10th work anniversary with Enstrom. When I’m not at work, you can reliably find me exploring the outdoors of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A few of my favorite outdoor activities include snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, camping, kayaking, swimming, riding four-wheelers, and training my dog.

My coworkers are honestly the best, and it’s a joy to come into work and see them every day. I’m looking forward to what my next ten years at Enstrom will bring!
