MD Helicopters has delivered five MD 902 Explorer helicopters to the Hungarian National Police air support unit, the company announced on 13 February.

The MD 902s will join the force's fleet at Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest that already includes three MD 500E helicopters.

The new aircraft will support missions including national security, border security, and air and ground support operations.

The new helicopters have been delivered equipped for night vision operations, with 3-axis auto pilot, digital video, high performance surveillance equipment, and cargo hooks permitting 3,000lbs of external load operations.

Randall Schaffer, director, aftermarket business development and customer engagement, MD Helicopters, said: 'We are proud to celebrate the addition of not just one, but five MD 902 helicopters to the Hungarian National Police fleet.

'The Hungarian National Police have been part of the MDHI family for more than 30 years. We could not have been more excited when we were informed they had decided to add the MD 902 to their fleet.'
