The MD-500 Helicopter

The MD-500 is the helicopter of choice for most strategic helicopter teams worldwide. The MD-500 is commonly referred to by it's military designator of "Little Bird". It's nimble airframe, five bladed rotor design and powerful turbine engine make this aircraft one of the most agile yet stable helicopters available!

 

Our MD-500 comfortably holds 4 personnel in it's current configuration. Typical configuration for hog hunts and aerial gunnery events is a pilot and an observer/spotter in the two front seats, and two shooters in the back two seats.

 

With the doors removed the gunner has a wide field of view and engagement area while remaining seated inside the aircraft and attached to a special gunners harness for added safety when leaning out of the aircraft.
