Whelen Engineering Company has completed an acquisition and spin-off of its Aviation Division with LoPresti Aviation. Whelen’s Aviation Division and LoPresti will be combined into a single organization named Whelen Aerospace Technologies, or WAT. LoPresti Aviation was founded in Sebastian, Florida in 1991. It has grown to become an industry-recognized leader in aviation lighting, as well as in aircraft speed modifications. The company has a diversified portfolio of top-tier customers and holds over 500 FAA STCs. Enstrom Helicopter Corporation has earned Transport Canada validation of their model 480B helicopter. As of January 25, 2019, the 480B joins the other Enstrom models listed under FAA Type Certificate H1CE which have been approved for operation in Canada including the F-28A, 280, F-28C, F-28C-2, 280C, F-28F, 280F, and 280FX.
