High Speed. High Altitude Lift. Hot Day Operation. Increased Thrust. Low Cost.
The MD 530F® is engineered to meet your requirements for hot-day, high-altitude operation. Equipped with the 650 shp Rolls-Royce 250-C30 engine, the MD 530F® operates more effectively in hot, high environments than other helicopters in its class. It offers the performance you need… at a lower cost of ownership.
The MD 530F®'s high altitude lift capability is achieved by main-rotor blades six inches longer than the MD 500E®. The tailboom is extended eight inches and the tail rotor blades have been lengthened to provide increased thrust and directional control at high altitudes.
Proven reliability, fail-safe design and the worldwide network of factory-authorized service centers assure customer satisfaction.
