We use an Enstrom 280C for some primary and instrument training, transition training, and rides of two passengers or where a larger payload is necessary.

Weight limits are 300 pounds for a single passenger or 350 pounds combined for two passengers.

The 280C is a single-engine piston, 3-seat light utility helicopter produced by Enstrom Helicopter Corporation. It is a great helicopter for training, personal ownership, and utility work.
