Enstrom Helicopter Corporation (Enstrom) has announced its new helicopter service centre: Copter & Boat’s Dream (also known as Copter Company in France), based in Cournonsec in southern France. Enstrom has also delivered its new 280FX to French training company Golf Tango.

Copter maintains over 30 helicopters – including six Enstroms – at its base in Cournonsec. Thanks to its proximity to Italy and Spain, Copter has some clients outside of France and even in French speaking countries of Africa, and their newest Enstrom will be the 280FX that was delivered to Golf Tango.

“The training options, along with the ability to promote Enstrom across France, has us very excited,” said CEO of Rotor and Aircraft (the Enstrom dealer in France) François Gatineau.

Dennis Martin, Director of Sales and Marketing at Enstrom Helicopter said: “We appreciate the dedication of François and look forward to many more opportunities in France because of it. With its fully articulated rotor system, and turbo charged engine, the 280FX has the safety and performance to do things other training helicopters just won’t do. This will really open up Gulf Tango’s capabilities. The training market in France was looking for an alternative to small, underpowered helicopters or helicopters’ unforgiving flying characteristics. The 280FX is that alternative, and now Golf Tango is giving it to them.”
