Enstrom Helicopter Corporation told Aero-News Thursday the

Inspectorate with an Enstrom 480B helicopter. The new aircraft will
serve as a surveillance helicopter for the Republic of

The 480B helicopter will be outfitted with the capability to
mount a surveillance camera and recording equipment, along with a
searchlight and emergency floats. The helicopter will be based in
Tallinn and will be operated throughout Estonia. The Environmental
Inspectorate’s mission is to protect Estonian natural
resources, such as wildlife, fisheries and forests while also
monitoring inland, coastal and territorial waterways. The aircraft
is scheduled to be delivered in April.
"Being selected to provide a helicopter to the Environmental
Inspectorate of Estonia is a very important international
endorsement stating that Enstrom is a top competitor in building
quality helicopters for government agencies around the world," said
Tracy Biegler, Director of Marketing and Sales.
Founded in 1959, Enstrom Helicopter Corporation manufactures a
complete line of helicopters including the three-place,
piston-powered F28F and 280FX, and the turbine-powered 480B. The
480B also is available as a three-place advanced trainer or as a
three- to five-place VIP aircraft.
For law enforcement applications, the 480B is known as the
Guardian and the F28F is called the Sentinel.
