IDAG receives new MD 530F
MD Helicopters (MDHI) has delivered a new MD 530F to the International Defense & Aerospace Group (IDAG) for training operations, the company announced on 5 July.
The custom-configured F-model helicopter with all-glass cockpit will join IDAG’s fleet of training aircraft operated by the Slovak Training Academy. Its primary role will be to support the tactical and NVG flight training needs of military and paramilitary helicopter pilots from around the world.
Powered by the Rolls-Royce 250-C30 650shp turbine engine, IDAG’s right-hand command MD 530F is the first type-certified 369FF aircraft to be produced with the company’s all-glass cockpit, and also features NVIS cockpit lighting, extended landed gear, and a 21-gallon Fargo auxiliary fuel tank.
IDAG also supports fleet operations and flight crew training for several regional national police agencies and operators.
Lynn Tilton, CEO, MD Helicopters, said: ‘We are excited about the sale of this MD 530F, and the opportunity to have military and paramilitary pilots from around the world train in the MD 530F.
‘MD Helicopters and IDAG are aligned in our commitment to delivering excellence in product quality, support and training, and in our belief that the MD 500E and MD 530F airframes offer the best performance in their class for training, law enforcement and military operations.’
