Training

Enstrom offers maintenance courses to educate pilots and ground crew.

What courses are offered?

Enstrom offers maintenance courses for both piston and turbine models. Please note: a satisfactory completion of the turbine course is a prerequisite to attending the piston course.

Training will emphasize inspection and routine maintenance of the helicopter and its systems. Maintenance, overhaul, and troubleshooting of the airframe and rotor system components will be covered, along with the Main Rotor tracking and Trail Rotor balance procedures.

Turbine Helicopter Course

The turbine model course teaches turbine model system maintenance and troubleshooting procedures unique to the 480/480B.

It is a five-day course, running Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Friday from 8:00 am to noon.

Piston Helicopter Course

The piston model course teaches system troubleshooting, main and tail rotor tracking techniques, and procedures for overhauling minor components.

The piston classes commence on Monday morning at 8:00 AM and are completed on Thursday at noon.

Due to systems commonality, the turbine course is considered a prerequisite for the piston course. Therefore, total time for piston training is 9 working days (piston plus turbine classes).

How much do the courses cost?

The tuition for the Turbine Course is $750 and Piston Course is $450. A discount of $100 is given to those who attend the piston course in conjunction with the turbine course. Full payment is due prior to the beginning of class.

Transportation, lodging and meals are the responsibility of each individual attending the course.
