WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1965. 1RONWOOD DAIIY GIOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THIPTFPN Helicopter Made In U. P. Selected For State Award DETROIT (AP) — A unique three-place helicopter, built with the financial backing of some 6,200 residents of Northern Michigan's Menominee area, was named Monday as Michigan Week Product of the Year. The craft, known as the F-28, was shown at a Michigan Week dinner attended by Gov. George Romney, Mayor Jerome Cavanagh of Detroit and more than 500 leaders ' of the business, labor and civic community at Cobo Hall. "Some people may think that the Upper Peninsula was a strange place to develop a helicopter manufacturing firm, but don't forget that in an earlier day, many people regarded Detroit as a strange place in which to start the auto business," said Romney. Three of the helicopters have been built as experimental models and have logged more than 700 hours flying time without I incident. Jack Christensen. 33-year-old president of the Enstrom Co. which is building the helicopters, said 30 firm orders have been receivec and that the first two craft will be delivered next September. "We are delighted to get this award and it is a source of great satisfaction to all of us who have been working on this helicopter project since 1957." Christensen said. He said that as of Monday, some 6.217 residents, virtually all of them from the Upper Peninsula, had invested SI .3 million in the helicopter firm's stock. A further public stock offering is due later in the year, he said. Christensen and Erik Jones, his general manager, said their helicopter has many advantages over its four U.S. competing companies. He said these include ease of handling, a 115- miles-per-hour top speed— which he said was about 15 miles faster than any competitor in the small helicopter field —and ease of maintenance. New Zealand firms nave ordered seven of the craft, which sell for about $30 thousand. None has been used by U.S. military forces -as yet but they have shown some interest in the craft, Christensen said. The Enstrom helicoptei won its top honors in finals compel!-! tion with products from 14 other: counties. j Wallace Machesney of Detroit, chairman of the state product and agricultural awards committee, said the finalists included Ford's Mustang car: the Comfort Air Conditioner built by Heat Control, Inc. of Jackson and Dow Chemical Co.'s new MAPP gas, which replaces acetylene. The helicopter was the sixth annual winner of the Michigan Week award. Trout Creek Personals Mrs. Thomas Grooms was honored at a birthday party held at her home on May 11.
