MD 500 in flight

Our two McDonnell Douglas 500D model (MD500D) helicopters are quick, nimble and very capable in specialty operations. Not only is the MD500D the backbone of our shake block extraction work but it also excels when it comes to working in small confined area with dense undergrowth.
The maximum numbers for you:

Seating capacity: 4 passengers
Endurance: 1.7 hours
Internal load: 1000 pounds
External hook load: 1200 pounds
Note: The numbers will change based on fuel, loads, temperatures and density altitudes. Please contact our Operations Manager, Laine Valentine to discuss how we can best serve your needs.
