Unlike most other works of rotorcraft technology first helicopter “jenstrom” appeared not in a quiet respectable Design Bureau. The prototype of this aircraft was assembled in a small workshop of the American heartland, on the outskirts of Michigan. Timber merchants and mechanic Rudy Jenstrom got hooked on vintokrylymi machines back in the late 40 ‘s, in an era of “helicopter boom”. Then the enthusiasts in the United States were vertical takeoff tens or even hundreds of home-made helicopters. The vast majority of these “sculpted on the knee” aircraft r azvalivalos’ at the first trial, pillaging, and crushing in the rubble of hapless vertoletostroitelej. Creation Jenstroma’ve been waiting for an exceptional destiny. Homemade inventor drew in the American Outback attention of local businessmen and they helped establish the mechanics in 1959, little firm r. j. Enstrom Corp. in Minomajne (Menominee) of Michigan. December 4, 1960 firstborn company F-28 took off for the first time under its own creator. The helicopter then had the most distant similarities with modern “jenstromami”. It was a typical handmade item. Polumonokokovaja double semi-covert cabin was located on the front of the fuselage fermennogo most primitive design. The fuselage had no covering. Rotor unit located on the universal sleeve on top of high masts-main shaft. Beneath it is a ludicrous gromozdilas’ polzushka swashplate. Constructive solutions to the majority of assemblies and systems Jenstrom borrowed from a famous at that time, the Bell-47. Empty weight helicopter hardly exceeded 500 kg takeoff-800 kg. The first tests of Enstrom F-28 revealed normal for advanced helicopters that time shortcomings: high vibration level, poor stability and controllability. Was the most routine and laborious process of creating helicopter flight testing and refinement. During one of the first missions tester “not retained” a car and flipped over. The pilot survived, but the helicopter was not restoration. This is usually followed by a majority of creators rotorcraft homemade torment technology but local sponsors Jenstroma, financed the construction was supported by helicopter-stunt double. Testing continued. Shareholders of r. j. Enstrom Corp. insisted on involving professional aviation constructors. They led the engineer Paul Schultz. Gradually constructors Redid the design of almost all units. The fuselage received a good aerodynamic shape was zakapotirovan plastic and Duralumin panels. The cabin became a triple and closed. Entrance was provided through the side doors of motor type. Tail boom got polumonokokovuju design. Of the two-bladed rotor turned into gyaan Gurung. Posting control passed now in the main shaft. Over Bush towered small swashplate type “spider”. In a stream of oncoming air above the fuselage remained only the mast of the main shaft. In short, Schultz aerodynamics curtain design elements. Vibration level has been significantly reduced, reliability of assemblies and systems-enhanced aerobatic characteristics are improved. Mass of the helicopter when it increased slightly. In April 1965, there was an outstanding event in the history of home-made helicopter Enstrom F-28 received a certificate of airworthiness. The company released in 1967-1968 Gg experimental game of 15 machines. On them immediately found buyers, but Jenstrom and Schultz did not stop to improve the car. Instead of 180 HP Lycoming HO-360-A1A, they installed a more powerful Lycoming HIO-360 modification-C1A in 205 HP So was established the F-28A. It Redid the first fifteen cars and started the mass production of the model. From 1968 to 1977, the firm E nstrom built 323 F-28A. Substantive support to the Organization of production and modernization of Enstrom F-28 provided financial group Pureks (Purex Corp.) is the Chief patron of the American light-engine aviation at that time. At the insistence of corporate management Jenstrom and Schultz were engaged in accordance with the fashion at that time, the concept of modifying the powerplant under the gas turbine engine. As the lightest gas turbine engine Allison 250-C20 turned out to be too heavy for such a small helicopter, designers engaged in adaptation as the engine gas turbine auxiliary power unit Garrett. Nothing from this venture failed. Spending on the utopian idea of a lot of effort, time and money, the employees of r. j. Enstrom Corp. were in 1970, on the verge of bankruptcy.

The impoverished firm bought Kommersant f. Lee Bailey, who had extensive experience in the automotive and aviation business. He renamed the company in: Enstrom Helicopter Corp., stopped all work on the gas turbine modification of t-28, but continued research on equipment of piston engine turbocharger. This experimental modification originally bore the name: F-28B. The most important consideration Whether Bailey drew at improving sales of small helicopters. Marketing and advertising policy it was to build the image and likeness of adopted in the automotive business. The price of “jenstroma” at that time was just over 62 thousand us dollars. The result is not slowed. If in 1970 the company r. j. Enstrom Corp. managed to “attach” a total of four F-28A, Enstrom Helicopter next year delivered already 18 such machines, in 1972 g. doubled rate in 1973, sold 64 F-28A, and in 1974 g. reached record-breaking sales-helicopter 90 per year. Furthermore, in 1974, the company has collected the first four helicopters new Mo difikacii Enstrom 280-shark (Shark-shark). Model Enstrom 280-his appearance was also obliged to “road” experience Lee Bailey. To raise the attractiveness of the products his company he drew to collaboration one of the well-known Boston firms of industrial design. Artists have developed for vertoletika new elegant external shape of the fuselage. They were not only very beautiful, but also benefit from the aerodynamic point of view. Enstrom 280-was recognized in 1974, one of the 25 best products of American industry. The appearance of “Sarka” made a splash in the world of vertoletostroenii and served as a role model for vertoletostroiteljam from around the world. Indeed, the spectacularly painted Enstrom 280-amazing beauty forms in all aviation exhibitions and world helicopter Championships. Feature “Sarka” steel and increased fuel tank capacity. Unfortunately, the beauty of the forms on the “Shark” is achieved at the expense of some reducing weight efficiency and payload, and cost “ennobled” option is more expensive. Therefore, the issue of the traditional model of the F-28 never cease. Enstrom Helicopter the first time annually supplied customers in 35-45 vehicles of both types. Since 1975, they produced under the designation: F-28C.2 and (in RUS), which meant installing on their 301E10 Rajay turbochargers and engines that significantly improved the flight characteristics of helicopters when operating at high altitudes, in humid and hot climate. (C) 1978 yr. model F-28 was produced in versions with-2 with total windshield instead of dvuhchastnogo and some other small improvements in design. For machines with “family” constructors Enstrom Helicopter specially developed a multifunctional set outboard equipment for aerial chemical work t, including hopper with a capacity of 340 litres of liquid chemicals and spraying scope 9 or 11 pm Just from 1975 to 1980, Enstrom Helicopter firm has sold 384 helicopters of the F-F-28C.2 28C.5-2 and (in RUS), is a great success for a small firm. However, Lee Bailey were harassing the high profits the industry leaders-companies Bell and Hughes 500 helicopters annually selling light 4-5 local class. He decided to try and force in this market. In 1978, air rose long version “Sarka”: 280L. Pilot sitting on the determination of the forward seat. Unfortunately, long model proved to be expensive and unsuccessful flight characteristics-the mediocre. Angered by Bailey sold his shares and left the firm. At the same time, on a number of objective and subjective reasons for failed attempts to arrange a license production of “jenstromov” in England the firm Spitfire LTD and PZL in Poland.

In 1980, the company’s new leadership. Enstrom Helicopter has launched mass production of two new models: F-28F “Falcon (Falcon-Falcon)” and “Sharq” 280F. Their main difference became more powerful 225-horsepower Lycoming HIO-360-F1AD turbocharged Rajay 301E10. After five years, external forms glider “Sharq” were a new refinement (installed new air intakes, keels and chassis fairings) and now model is built in version 280FX. It was first installed udaropoglashhajushhie seats. Of great interest is the “policeman” version of F-28F-P “Sentajnl (Sentinel-hour)”, equipped with various specialized equipment, which includes even the lightweight Locator. Police Options “jenstromov” are widespread in American services order. Triumphant invaded the market “miracle helicopters» helicopter Robinson R-22, and then his four” younger brother “R-44 dealt the heaviest blow to business firms Enstrom Helicopter. The annual production of “sandwiched” robinsonami “from both sides” models F-28F and 280FX does not exceed and a dozen. The only exceptions are repeated from time to time, larger orders for training options from Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and other Latin American countries, where “jenstromy” is still in great demand due to their higher technical specifications when used in mountain and hot climates. Also great expectations management Enstrom Helicopter puts on the Chinese market. In this country today is organized by the licensed Assembly of “jenstromov”. So far customers some 250 machines Enstrom F-28F, 280F and 280FX. The cost of the F-28F to the American market now exceeds 250 thousand dollars, 280FX-260 thousand. Helicopters Enstrom F-28F and 280FX have classical odnovintovuju schema. Truss fuselage with a covering of fibreglass and light alloys; large tail boom design, made of aluminum alloy, it is installed with the stabilizer pin washers. The helicopter cabin width of 1.55 (1.5 to 280FX) m triple with communal seat for pilots and passengers, made using jenergopoglashhajushhih technology. Central seat may be removed. In training in cockpit installed double set of controls. On each side of the cabin there are glazed sliding doors with a height of 1.04 m and a width of 0.84 m.

Rotor with trehsharnirnym mount blade. Horizontal and vertical joints. Metal blades, rectangular in plan, made of light alloys, the chord of the airfoil 0.24 m, NACA profile-00135. Tail rotor diameter of 1.42 m, with bushing on a cardan, is located on the left side of the fuselage. Tail rotor has a safety fence. The powerplant consists of a horizontal located four-cylinder air-cooled piston engine Lycoming HIO-360-F1AD and turbocharger. Engine using belt transmission results in rotating two-stage main gearbox and the tail rotor transmission output shaft directly. Tail rotor drive shaft closed gargrotom-fairing. Ratio of the rotor to the motor 1:7.154; from the tail rotor to the motor 1:1.156. Fuel system includes two tanks with total capacity of 159 l. locker can be installed additional fuel tank capacity l 49. oil tank Capacity 9.5 l ski Chassis, stands completely closed cones and have oil-pneumatic shock absorbers. At the request of the customer installed the floats. Wheel track 2.21 m airscrew management system includes the swashplate type “spider”. pilotage management system steering screw cable. Engine management is done using Flex handle motorcycling TI PA established on lever a shared step. Trimmernye installed control system mechanisms.

Equipment includes radionavigacionnuju system Loran-c, command radio Owns to 197 with device vnutriperegovornym, KT-76A transponder, alarm device and other equipment, standard for light aircraft. Another promising direction for further development of the “jenstromov” is the production of quintuple-Enstrom 480. This model for the first time rose up into the air in 1988, creating 480th model specialists Enstrom Helicopter used experience design Enstrom-280L, but, unlike the failed predecessor, the new modification is used as powerplant not Lycoming piston and turbine engine Allison 25 0C20. Power transmission capacity restricts take-off engine power 285 HP

Model 480 also appeared as the Schweizer 330-thanks in large part to the competition, declared Army aviation United States on new triple training helicopter with turbine engine. Training variant called: TH-28. In his spacious cockpit training instructor at two of the cadets. Preference given military light helicopter Bell-406, did not violate management plans on the development of model Helicopter Enstrom 480. Thereto the interest of many civilian operators in both the United States and in other parts of the world. Already sold over fifty machines. Some 480-x successfully operated in Russia. Enstrom 480-cost more than 560 thousand dollars. At present, the Enstrom Helicopter delivered to customers over thousands of “jenstromov” all modifications. More than 700 helicopters is in constant operation. Production continues. Designers are busy fine-tuning a new promising model 480B takeoff weight up to 1400 kg. Thanks to the installation of a new powertrain engine takeoff power Allison 250 c 20 increased to 305 HP.
