Pilot - - ROTORHEADS -

En­strom now has two TH-180 pro­to­types in the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme, one in flight test and the other en­gaged in a 100-hour ground run trial of the drive sys­tem and con­trols. ‘Sev­eral tests have been com­pleted and the pro­gramme is steadily pro­gress­ing to­ward cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by the end of this year,’ the com­pany says, adding that it is work­ing closely with the FAA and EASA for con­cur­rent US and Euro­pean cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of the TH-180, which is aimed at the ro­tary wing train­ing mar­ket.
