Model MD 500E
Units Feet
Description The MD 500 light utility helicopter was introduced in 1982 to both civilian and military buyers. While the owners of MD Helicopters has changed, this iconic helicopter has remained a staple of the brand and over 4,700 airframes have been built. The MD500 is most commonly used by police and fire agencies across the world due to its relatively low operating costs and design reliability. The MD 500E can cruise at 5,000 ft for 287 nm, but it is not known for its range capabilities, and instead for its relatively high speed (136 kt) and agility even when carrying heavy loads. Affectionately referred to as the “supercar of helicopters” by many pilots, this tried-and-true aircraft is a dream machine for those who have the privilege to fly it!
