This week Enstrom Helicopter Corporation announced the certification of the Appareo Vision 1000 for their Enstrom 480B turbine helicopter. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification was followed by certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC).
It is a self-contained design that is a perfect fit for the Enstrom 480B, the fact that it can capture so much information and it can be installed in a day in new or older aircraft has made it a perfect option for our customers.” – Dennis Martin, Enstrom Helicopter
