MD Helicopters


MD Helicopters (MDHI) has been providing transition training and recurring pilot/maintenance training for military customers for more than 50 years. “The best way to learn to fl y an MD product is in an MD product. There are no better instructors than our MDHI pilots and maintenance engineers,” said Nick Nenadovic, MDHI’s vice president of aftermarket and customer support.


For military pilots, MDHI’s transition fl ight training is comprised of a fi ve- day class that provides 16 hours of ground school, and up to fi ve hours of fl ight training. The course familiarizes appropriately rated helicopter pilots with MD500, MD520N, MD530, MD600, and MD Explorer helicopter systems and operation. “The ground school segment covers publications, aircraft systems, operational procedures, and prefl ight inspection procedures. Four to fi ve hours of fl ight time includes practice of normal fl ight and selected emergency procedures,” said Nenadovic.


For pilots who are familiar with MD aircraft or who have already completed transition fl ight training but need to stay current, MDHI provides comprehensive recurrent training.


At present, MDHI is providing military fl ight/maintenance training for the U.S. Army and partner military organizations. “We also support the U.S. Naval Test

“Paramilitary
