The Enstrom 480B is our flagship aircraft. Developed to US Army New Training Helicopter (NTH) requirements, this aircraft can out-maneuver and out-perform in any situation. Known for its reputation in safety, stability, comfort and value, the 480B combines power and weight with light agility at the controls. Experienced pilots will attest to its unparalleled stability and solid craftsmanship when they grab the controls. While stealth-like in appearance, the 480B’s true handling beauty lies on the inside.
Leading the light single turbine class in safety, performance and versatility, the Enstrom 480B has also won its stripes for value. Priced as aggressively as it looks in the field, the 480B blows a dust storm on the competition when it comes to direct operating costs. With the fewest number of retirement items, and no airframe life limit, our 480Bs will still be proudly flying while our competitors are losing money in the shop.
