McDonnell Douglas MD-500 Helicopters for Sale

Please go here to see our McDonnell Douglas MD-500 Helicopters for sale. McDonnell Douglas introduced the MD-500 helicopter in 1967. This is a light helicopter for use in the civilian market as well as for military applications. It is a very popular helicopter that is still in production to this day.

The MD-500 can accommodate 2 crew and 5 people as a maximum. It has a turbo shaft engine located at the rear of the cabin and this is mounted at 45°. Hughes Helicopters were the original developer and manufacturer of the MD-500 until McDonnell Douglas acquired them in 1984.

In 1976 the MD-500D model launched which had a 5 blade main rotor, an engine with more power and a T-Tail. From 1982 the 500E this model was replaced as it included a number of improvements to the interior increasing the room in the cabin. A significant upgrade was the MD-520N that had a number of advancements.

The 520N used the NOTAR system developed by McDonnell Douglas which counteracted the torque of the rotor. Noise from the tail rotor was reduced significantly as well with the enclosed rotor inside the tail boom. There were further enhancements to the MD-520N which included the use of the 250-C20R+ engine from Rolls Royce for increased power.

There have been a few variants of the ND-520 mainly to accommodate military requirements as well as interior and exterior improvements. You can see our fine selection of McDonnell Douglas MD-500 Helicopters for sale here.
