Piston F-28F & 280FX

Both the F-28F and the 280FX (Shark) deliver excellent performance, an enviable safety record, and low direct operating costs. The turbocharged power plant provides excellent high altitude performance. Our high inertia, fully articulated rotor system provides safety and stability, as well as a smooth ride and exceptional autorotation capabilities. Our unblocked tail rotor provides exceptional yaw control in the windiest conditions. Plus, comfort is king in our spacious cabin with NASA-inspired foam seating.

Enstrom helicopters are well suited for military pilot training, law enforcement, and commercial and agriculture markets. And they are just plain fun to fly for the private pilot. All Enstroms are proudly assembled in the USA with domestic parts and labor.
