MD Helicopters MD530F
Genuine 'F' models are rare and most seen for sale are designated "FF" which are 500E airframes reconfigured to run the RR250-C30 engine and certified as MD530FF. Finding a genuine airframe with so few hours presents an opportunity to invest in one of the world's most successful light utility helicopters.
The MD530F is notorious as a stroppy, powerful variant in the MD500 series which eases past 10,000 ft thanks to the powerful compressor in the C30P engine. Combined with the larger rotor system, it will carry 600kgs/1320lbs on the hook high into the mountain regions of the planet. The 530F is a favorite of utility operators working in the Electricity Sector and dominates the survey and power line maintenance market where the stability and power make it a pilot favorite.
To buy one new is more than $2.7M USD, so a lightly used airframe like this with a PBH Engine and only 220 hours TT on the hook since 1984, presents a compelling opportunity, please call or email.
