The MD 530F® is engineered to meet your requirements for hot-day, high-altitude operation. Equipped with the 650 shp Allison 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 that 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.
