The Enstrom 480B has exceptional autorotational capabilities, with a conservative descent rate of 1400fpm on a standard day. In the event of an engine failure, the pilot has ample to time to lower the collective. This is due to the 480B’s high-inertia main rotor system which provides more than sufficient stored energy for safe uneventful autorotations. The 480B has one of the lowest accident rates in the world.
