HLH Aviation Take Delivery of MD 530F

HLH Aviation recently took delivery of a converted MD5 30F after enrolling in MD Helicopter’s E-F conversion program.

The MD 530F is a converted version of the MD500 series, the most popular series of MD Helicopters in the Asia-Pacific region.

HLH intends to upgrade its MD 500E fleet to increase the aircraft’s performance with higher power and higher takeoff weight.

“The E-to-F conversion program provides an affordable option for MD500E operators to boost power, capabilities, and maximum gross weight,” says Jason Lindauer, Vice President of Military and Commercial Sales.

“The program transforms the MD 500E into a more powerful and capable type-certified MD 530F. The aircraft leaves Mesa with a zero-time engine for a fraction of the cost of a new helicopter, saving operators time and money over buying new.” Lindauer added.

According to Asian Sky Media’s 2021 Asia-Pacific Region Civil Helicopters Fleet Report, MD is the fourth largest helicopter OEM in the Asia-Pacific region.
