Sandel Avionics has reached an agreement with the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) to supply its SN3500 primary navigation display and SG102 attitude heading reference system (AHRS) for a fleet of 30 Enstrom 480Bs. The helicopters are used to train Japanese military pilots. Representatives of JGSDF, Enstrom and Sandel met during Heli-Expo in February to finalize the purchase order for the avionics. Enstrom will install the avionics as part of 480B production, with deliveries scheduled over the next three years.
