Enstrom 480

@ San Carlos, CA

October 2021

This Enstrom departs to be the star attraction of the annual Halloween Pumpkin Drop put on by the Hiller Aviation Museum. Originally developed as the TH-28 for a US Army New Training Helicopter competition, the civilian version 480 was certified in 1993 with over 140 delivered.  Besides use in many civilian flight schools, the 480 is in service with six foreign air forces.  A feature of Enstrom’s helicopters is the lack of exposed pitch change links for the main rotor, as the mechanisms are contained inside the hollow main rotor shaft, lowering aerodynamic drag.  Nikon D500 w/70-200mm.
