Enstrom Helicopter Appoints New Chief Operating Officer

Adam Richardson

Enstrom Helicopter announced today they have hired Adam Richardson as their Chief Operating Officer.

Adam has over 17 years of experience in the aerospace industry, having held a variety of roles across multiple functions including Quality, Planning & Control, and Operations Management. Adam was born and raised in Indiana, joined the Marine Corps, and eventually graduated from Marine Corps Communication Electronics School in Twenty-Nine Palms, CA. He attended Purdue University majoring in mechanical engineering which spurred a job opportunity at Roll-Royce Corporation. Adam has a BS from Indiana Wesleyan in Business Management.

“Flight is something I have always been intrigued by, but never ventured into,” Adam said. “After visiting Enstrom for the first time and seeing three helicopters on the flight line I knew I wanted this in my future!” Adam recently started flying as a student pilot and studying for his private pilot license in an Enstrom 280FX, with aspirations to take his checkride in January. Adam brings a wave of energy to the site and a desire to enable everyone to be at their best.

Adam, his wife Jamie, and their two kids Ethan and Harper look forward to exploring the upper peninsula and furthering their explorations of the Great Lakes including Lake Superior. They are happiest outside, exploring on foot, by boat, or driving down a trail.
