Enstrom 280FX

Cargo Hook Kit with TALON LC Keeperless Hook

If you opt for a cargo hook system on your Enstrom F280FX aircraft, you'll be glad to know it's from Onboard Systems. Enstrom Helicopters worked directly with Onboard to develop a state-of-the-art cargo hook system for the F280FX aircraft, and it shows!

While traditionally used for passenger transport, the F280FX also makes an excellent utility aircraft. Available exclusively through Enstrom, this cargo hook kit features Onboard's popular TALON LC Keeperless Cargo Hook, giving operators a user-friendly option for increasing revenue generating opportunities by setting up their existing F280-FX aircraft for external load work.

NOTE: Available exclusively through Enstrom Helicopters
