The Newest Addition To MD Helicopters

MD Hughes helicopters are already one of the most trusted and reliable helicopter names out there. With their proliferation and frequent usage, it makes finding MD Hughes helicopter parts & helicopter repairs for these models extremely easy. The folks at MD helicopters not only create such great helicopters, they continue to innovate and add on to their growing family.

The newest addition to the MD helicopter family was brought about by a deal with Mr. Peter Farmar. Farmar, who has been a long time MD helicopter customer, brought the helicopter in a partnership. The veteran pilot of the MD 500, Farmar was excited to start flying the more powerful version, the MD 530.

The Specs – the MD 530 offers quite a few new components and variations to its relative. Starting with the 650 shp Rolls Royce 250-C30 engine and longer main-rotor blades, this helicopter has quickly become the company’s best hot-day, high-altitude performer. If you are comparing this model to the older MD 500, the 530’s has lengthened tail rotor blades, as well as, an eight-inch extended tailboom, contributing to its increase in thrust and directional control at high altitudes.

Operational Capabilities – the MD 530F has increased operational capabilities which allow it a lot more versatility and performance on missions. The MD 530 retains all of the “family values” that other MD’s have: agility, speed, low direct operating costs, and the ability to easily operate in confined spaces. It also carries new capabilities, sprouted from its new strengths; it’s reliable workhorse has greater take-off power at a much higher hover ceiling levels than its competitors, with in-ground-effect hover capabilities of 16,000 feet ISA.
