A new RPM Governor for ENSTROM piston helicopters

Enstrom Helicopters is pleased to reveal the development of a new RPM Governor for Enstrom piston helicopters. Designed to aid pilots in maintaining rotor RPM, the new governor uses a digital controller and fast acting servo motor to accurately control RPM.

During autorotation training, it will automatically maintain the RPM just below the green. During the power recovery it will increase engine RPM and marry the needles, and the engine won’t overspeed.

Safety and convenience are what drove the design of the new governor. The governor system will be available on new model 280FX and F28F helicopters and available as a retrofit to any 28-volts 280FX and F28F helicopters in the field.
