Enstrom joins elite ranks in technology: introducing the 480B-G

Enstrom is pleased to announce that the Federal Aviation Administration has certified the Garmin G1000H all-glass, integrated flight deck for installation in its 480B helicopter model. The new configuration will be designated the 480B-G.

“This program is a significant milestone for Enstrom as we continue with future developments in our product line offerings” said Tracy Biegler, Enstrom President and CEO. “Every department in the company pulled together to make this happen. My congratulations to Garmin and Enstrom teams in accomplishing this huge task.”

The 480B-G is now one of three helicopters in the world—and the only helicopter in its class—to offer a G1000H Integrated Flight Deck System. “Combining the G1000H with the safety and handling qualities of the 480B make this an exceptional helicopter for anything, including personal use, police work, and training,” according to Bill Taylor, Enstrom's Director of Engineering. “We partnered with RSG Aerodesign during the design phase, and that really helped get the project moving. We would not have been able to accomplish this in the time we did without their support early on.”

The G1000H reduces pilot workload and presents all critical flight and engine information at a glance, thereby increasing simplicity, safety, and situational awareness. “We are excited to bring this technology into the helicopter market,” said Orlando Alaniz, Director of Sales and Marketing at Enstrom. “It is a logical addition to our line of aircraft designed for safety, performance, and innovation.”

The first 480B-G is already in production and will be delivered to the customer in the near future.
