Cool! Enstrom Adds AC to 280FX, F28F Helicopters

Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems to Supply Climate Control Add-On

Enstrom Helicopters are shaking up their portfolio with the addition of air conditioning as standard equipment on their 280FX and F28F helicopters.

The units will come courtesy of Kelly Aerospace Thermal Systems, using their all-electric air conditioner suite. The firm holds an STC for the Enstrom line of lightweight helicopters, and will be available as a factory-installed option off the floor, or a post-sale retrofit for those who want them.

“Air conditioning has been high on our customer’s wish list,” said Dennis Martin, Enstrom’s Chief Commercial Officer. “So when it came time to develop a new system for the 280FX and F28F, we went to the experts at Kelly. Their system is lightweight and incredibly powerful. Enstrom owners will finally be able to enjoy their helicopters in cool comfort during the warm summer months.”

For Kelly, the partnership marks the entry into a new market. “Kelly has long been a leader in air conditioning for general aviation airplanes,” commented Walter Dodge, Kelly’s VP of Business Development. “With that success, we want to expand into the rotorcraft market, and we couldn’t be happier about doing that with Enstrom. Their premium aircraft are the perfect place to showcase our air conditioning technology.”
