Piston F-28F & 280FX

Enstrom’s piston-powered “Falcon” F-28F and “Shark” 280FX are nicknamed for their sleek aerodynamic styling. With power, aggressiveness and superior handling agility, the same could describe each aircraft’s overall performance. Add Enstrom’s reputation for safety, value and low maintenance costs, and you’ll discover why we set the standard in the light helicopter market.

Both the Falcon and Shark models deliver sports car handling to the piston-powered helicopter segment with excellent performance, an enviable safety record and low direct operating costs. The turbo-charged power plant provides excellent high altitude performance. Stability and safety are delivered through our high inertia, fully articulated rotor system, which provides an unusually smooth ride and exceptional autorotative capabilities. Our unblocked tail rotor provides exceptional yaw control in the windiest conditions. Plus, comfort is king in our spacious cabin with NASA inspired seating.

The Falcon and Shark features include:

  • Roomy cabin for 2-3 people
  • Custom paint designs with unlimited color schemes
  • Powerful, turbo charged, Textron Lycoming HIO-360-F1AD engine
  • 240º pilot visibility with chin and overhead windows
  • High skids allow for police, medical and military equipment
  • Low maintenance with excellent parts availability
  • High-inertia rotor system greatly benefits auto rotation capability
  • Unblocked tail rotor provides excellent control in high winds from any angle
  • Excellent Hot and High Performance
