    Intro

    The MD530F helicopter is a single engine 1-2 crew light utility helicopter and the third member of the Hughes/MD500 series built by Hughes Helicopters and McDonnell Douglas Helicopter systems since the mid-1970s with introduction in the early 1980s (1982).

    The original platform was the famous Hughes OH-6 Cayuse/Loach with the very characteristic Y-tale that was used by the military in several countries around the globe and which also had a civilian version named Hughes 500.

    The MD530F version is a high heat and high altitude helicopter making it a superb solution for heavy lifting in bad weather conditions due to its higher tolerances.
