Enstrom Helicopter on November 22 announced the appointment of Adam Richardson as Chief Operating Officer. He brings more than 17 years of experience in the aerospace industry in a range of roles from quality, planning and control to operations management.
Richardson was born and raised in Indiana, joined the U.S. 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. Richardson holds a BS from Indiana Wesleyan in Business Management.
“Flight is something I have always been intrigued by, but never ventured into,” said Richardson. “After visiting Enstrom for the first time and seeing three helicopters on the flight line I knew I wanted this in my future.”
Richardson 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.
