Enstrom selects Genesys helicopter autopilot for 480B
Wednesday, 6 March 2024
The airframer appreciates the safety advantages the 3-axis VFR autopilot provides, with features like auto-recovery and the ability to shoot fully coupled approaches. It's a game changer, Enstrom says.

Genesys Aerosystems is working with Enstrom Helicopter Corporation to install and certify the latest generation Genesys Helicopter Autopilot in the Enstrom 480B. The 3-axis VFR autopilot is scheduled for completion and availability for OEM factory fit and aftermarket retrofit by the end of 2024. Interested customers can have the autopilot installed by Enstrom or at select Genesys dealers.

“We pride ourselves in being customer-focused, so we are excited to work with Enstrom to offer the industry standard for helicopter autopilots to its customer base. This will provide significant improvements in aircraft safety, operational improvements, and mission effectiveness,” says Jamie Luster, Genesys' Director of Sales and Marketing.

“I was able to test fly the prototype installation recently,” comments Dennis Martin, Enstrom's Chief Commercial Officer. “We were highly impressed. It flew the helicopter very well and has advanced functionality. The 480B is already very stable, but the stability augmentation system takes it to a whole new level. What really stood out was the safety advantages it provides with features like auto-recovery and the ability to shoot fully coupled approaches. It's a game changer!”
