Enstrom Helicopter has received Transport Canada certification for its 480B helicopter, the company announced on 4 February.

The 480B now joins the other Enstrom helicopter models listed under the FAA Type Certificate H1CE, which have been approved for operation in Canada including the F-28A, 280, F-28C, F-28C-2, 280C, F-28F, 280F and 280FX.

Dennis Martin, director of marketing and sales, Enstrom, said:  ‘A number of our customers have expressed a desire to operate 480Bs in Canada and this new validation will allow them to do so under Canadian registration.  

‘With its legendary toughness, fully articulated rotor head and low operating costs, we feel the 480B is a natural in the demanding Canadian environment.  Our piston aircraft have proved their worth there for years and we look forward to giving turbine customers a new, versatile option.’
