Enstrom introduces new trainer model, TH180

Menominee, Michigan—Enstrom Helicopter Corporation is pleased to introduce the newest member of its family, the TH180. Designed as a training helicopter, the TH180 is based on Enstrom’s solid reputation for safety and customer support with additional focus on low operating costs and ease of learning.

“The TH180 is designed with the student in mind. Its rugged frame with robust, energy-absorbing landing gear delivers wide margins of safety during the learning process,” said Bill Taylor, Director of Engineering. “In addition, the high inertia main rotor provides excellent autorotation characteristics and, coupled with the airframe design, contributes to the helicopter's unparalleled stability. The high inertia main rotor blades and articulated hub combine with the unblocked tail rotor to produce amazing controllability and very forgiving handling qualities.”

“The TH180 is also designed for the flight instructor. Mechanical controls provide direct feedback to the pilot, and basic systems prepare the student for a variety of future flying opportunities. With plenty of head and leg room, memory foam seating, and quiet cabin environment, an instructor will experience many hours of quality training and comfort with the student pilot,” said Orlando Alaniz, Director of Sales and Marketing.

Finally, the TH180 will be an economical addition to the training fleet. With few life-limited parts and superb customer and technical support, the TH180 boasts ease of maintenance and low operating costs. Rotor gearboxes are exchanged on an overhaul basis, and over ninety percent of parts are shipped within 24 hours, meaning less time spent on the ground. And its sleek, stylish design is a reflection of good taste.

Enstrom will debut its new TH180 trainer mockup at the Helicopter Association International Heli-Expoin Anaheim, California, on February 25.

Founded in 1959, Enstrom Helicopter Corporation designs, fabricates, assembles, and tests a full line of light single helicopters for sale and delivery to customers in the global market. They are used for training, executive transport, and commercial operations. Enstrom is a wholly owned subsidiary of ChongqingHelicopter Investment Group (CQHIC) and is located in Menominee, Michigan.
