The development of lung Double aircraft model Enstrom TH180 become carried American aircraft in 2011 year. As a fundamental principle, aircraft manufacturers have used the image of a model helicopter Enstrom F280, which became a very successful aircraft operated with 1975 year to date.

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.
