Czechia CLV Enstrom 480B 1 640New Enstrom 480s for CLV

On 27 may 2021 the Centrum Leteckého Výcviku LOM s.p. (CLV) from the Vzdušné síly armády České republiky (CzAF, Czech Air Force) received two new Enstrom 480B-G training helicopters. The serials are 0484 (construction number 5230, ex OK-VRG) and 0485 (c/n 5245, ex OK-LPT).

As replacement for the ageing Mi-2s, the CLV received four Enstrom 480B-Gs. The first two Enstrom 480B-Gs were delivered on 21 June 2018 and these were followed by another two on 14 August 2018. These four helicopters are camouflaged with dayglow colours on the nose and tail section. The two new Enstroms are completely white with only the Czech flag on the tail.

Next to those six Enstrom 480s the CLV also has a nice variety of aircraft in service; one EV-97 Eurostar, one Zlin 43C, nine Zlin 142s, six Mi-17s, two L-410s and seven L-39s. All are based at Pardubice.
