Aircraft Data

The MD Explorer is a light twin helicopter which was the first new design to incorporate the NOTAR anti-torque system that reduces pilot workload and external noise levels, and improves safety in confined areas and on offshore platforms.

The large cabin makes the MD Explorer ideally suited for rapid role change from an Offshore/Onshore six-place passenger transport to Emergency Medical Services or Law Enforcement Police surveillance missions. The latest model is the MD 902.
