A brilliant modern helicopter designed for a pilot who wants to fly fast and look his absolute best. It is efficient, functional and at the same time gives you complete pleasure from flying.

Enstrom easily combines cutting-edge technology, stunning design and exceptional comfort. The spacious cabins of F28F and 280FX models make it possible to transport additional equipment and tools necessary for work.

A spacious open landing area without any columns, pillars or walls facilitates movement and does not limit the view. Adjustable pedals, ample legroom and distance from the seat cushion to the ceiling are those features that the helicopter pilot regulates, and not vice versa. A huge cabin, NASA-inspired seat foam, many windows and low noise levels provide the highest level of passenger comfort.

Nevertheless, the Enstrom helicopter is pleasant not only to sit, but also to fly. Direct, unforced control gives a sense of reliability and, at the same time, control sensitivity. The legendary softness and stability of the flight of Enstrom helicopters with standard electronics settings enable the pilot to control the helicopter all day and not feel tired. Interchangeability of controls, standard inertial seat belts and such features as removable doors make F28F and 280FX practical and convenient for any task in any environment.

Each Enstrom helicopter can be constructed with a wide range of options from colorful graphics and interior design in a specific style to the installation of special aviation electronics, outdoor searchlights, cameras and any other equipment necessary for work.
