Over 50 years of experience. That's some serious flying hours.

Safety

Enstrom builds the safest helicopters in operation today. Safety has always been our focus and we are proud of our safety record. This fact is demonstrated by:

  • Over 4,000,000 flight hours on the main rotor system without catastrophic failure
  • Fail-safe, belt driven transmission on over 1,500 aircraft
  • Energy absorbing landing gear
  • Heavy-duty design for passenger safety
  • High-inertia rotor system benefits auto rotation response time
  • Unblocked tail rotor provides excellent control in high winds from any angle

In a comparison of single engine helicopters utilizing NTSB accident data from 1996-2010, both Enstrom’s Piston and Turbine models ranked as being the safest when scored for fewest fatal accidents per 100 registered aircraft in 2010.
