Sales agent takes delivery of new MD 530FMD Helicopters Inc (MDHI) has announced the sale and delivery of a new MD 530F to International Defense & Aerospace Group (IDAG), a Pennsylvania-based sales agent.

The company’s first MD 530F aircraft with a production all-glass cockpit, the custom-configured F-model will join an IDAG fleet of training aircraft operated by the Slovak Training Academy, which also operates five MD 500E helicopters.

The primary role of this latest aircraft is to support “the tactical and NVG (night vision goggle) flight training needs of military and paramilitary helicopter pilots from around the world”.

An authorised MDHI sales agent for “select Central and Eastern European opportunities” since 2017, IDAG focuses on the sale and service of ‘specialty rotorcraft solutions’ to military and paramilitary operators throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Bob Caldwell, president and CEO of IDAG, said: “We believe in the quality, proven performance and durability of MD Helicopters’ aircraft.

“The MD 500-series helicopters are perfectly suited for training missions.”

This aircraft, which is powered by a Rolls-Royce 250-C30 650shp turbine engine, is the first type-certified 369FF aircraft to be produced with the company’s all-glass cockpit; it also features NVIS cockpit lighting, extended landing gear and a 21-gallon auxiliary fuel tank.
