Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

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.
