MD Helicopters Proudly Presents Aircraft to Turkish National Police - Posted on on Thursday, May 11, 02:25 GMT
Emergency Services News
MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) yesterday presented five MD 600N helicopters to the Turkish National Police (TNP) for inspection and acceptance. TNP representatives, including their team leader and four pilots, were on hand at the MDHI site to commence the inspection and acceptance process.

The aircraft, the remaining five of 10 ordered by the TNP, will be stationed in varied locations throughout Turkey. TNP headquarters its existing MD 600Ns at Ankara and Istanbul and utilizes the aircraft for general law enforcement missions, including surveillance and patrol missions, in various regions of the country. Four of the new helicopters incorporate infrared systems to further assist law enforcement missions.

One authority from the Turkish Police Aviation Department stated that the TNP have been successfully operating the five helicopters previously delivered by MDHI and are quite happy with the performance.

“I take great pride in presenting the remaining MD 600Ns to the TNP, taking one more step forward in demonstrating our deep commitment to our global customer base,” said Lynn Tilton, MDHI Chairman of the Board and acting CEO. “The Turkish National Police have now added to its fleet ten of the safest, most quiet helicopters available in the world market.”

The MD 600N is a seven-place, single-engine helicopter that features the Company’s exclusive NOTAR® system for anti-torque and directional control. MD Helicopters, with their NOTAR system, are highly favored by international law enforcement agencies as they boast speed, agility noise reduction, and most important, inherent safety features.

The ceremony and presentation were held at the MD Helicopters facility followed by a company-wide celebration for TNP representatives and the company’s 250 employees.
