Piston F28F

The F-28F delivers 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.

A History of Safety

Our engineers and designers have been on the forefront of safety and innovation since the first helicopter came off our assembly line. And ever since we’ve been perfecting the many safety features on board every helicopter, resulting in Enstrom being named one of the safest aircraft for nearly three decades.
