The development of the Enstrom TH180 lightweight two-seater aircraft began to be carried out by American aircraft designers in the 2011 year. As a basis, aircraft manufacturers used the image of a helicopter model Enstrom F280, which has become a very successful aircraft, operated from 1975 year to the present.

In the process of development, the US aircraft manufacturers partly to optimize the design of the aircraft, making it more compact and at the same time, more aerodynamic, which made the helicopter is very agile and fast. In turn, the main aim of developing models of Enstrom TH180 served as the need to introduce to the US market of small educational and training aircraft, however, already in the final stage of the project, the experts made the optimization of aircraft making is inherently a multi-purpose helicopter.

His first flight of the aircraft Enstrom TH180 model has made in the early 2015 years, while, aircraft performance indicators coincided with the expectation of leadership «Enstrom Helicopter Corporation» Aircraft Company, in connection with which, since 2016 years was deployed production of these aircraft, which is supposed to be able to become very popular, helped by their speed, and versatility of application and the price is about 375 thousand dollars per copy.

One of the most notable shortcomings helicopter model Enstrom TH180 is its small capacity, which, in fact, somewhat limits the scope of operation, however, experts believe that if the aircraft will gain enough high popularity, then subsequently appear and triple modification that will allow operate the helicopter, including in the commercial sector.

Due to the compactness of the cabin of the aircraft, the transportation on board of any cargo is not possible, which also imposes a number of restrictions on the scope of operation of this helicopter.

The power plant air Enstrom TH180 vessel consists of a piston aircraft engine brand Lycoming HIO-390, which has a capacity of 210 hp, can accelerate to a speed of the aircraft in 180 km \ h. and allows to overcome the distance to 400 kilometers, taking into account cost and other characteristics, is a very acceptable figure.
