Explorers join Hungarian Police
In late January MD Helicopters delivered five MD 902 Explorers to the Hungarian National Police at Budapest’s Liszt-ferenc Airport. They join an air support unit that also includes three MD 500Es — a type the force has been flying since 1986 — and replace an aging Mil Mi-2 fleet. The MD 902s are equipped with night vision, three-axis autopilot, TCAS, digital video, high-performance surveillance equipment, and a 3,000lb-capacity cargo hook for external load operations.
