Enstrom Helicopter has received type certification for its F-28/280/480 series helicopters from the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand, the company announced on 31 October.

Enstrom piston aircraft have been operating in New Zealand for many years. This latest type acceptance updates to the latest certification on those aircraft and also approves Enstrom’s turbine powered 480B for operation in New Zealand.

Dennis Martin, director of marketing and sales, Enstrom, said: ‘The Enstrom helicopters, with their rugged features and great safety record are a perfect fit for New Zealand. The three bladed, fully articulated rotor system is a good choice for the windy conditions and mountainous terrain.

‘We are very excited about introducing the 480B to New Zealand. Already the first 480B is on its way from the US, and we look forward to customers there getting a chance to see what a modern, cost effective turbine Enstrom can do.’

Enstrom’s entire product line is certified in over 40 countries including the US, Australia and the UK.
