MD Helicopters, July 20, 2016 - Mesa, Ariz. - MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) announces its participation in the 2016 Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA) Expo, July 20-22, 2016, at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center, Savannah, Georgia.
The MD Helicopters booth, #136, will feature one of two Gwinnett County Police Department Aviation Unit MD 530F helicopters.
In 2015, Gwinnett County upgraded their proven MD 500E aircraft through our factory-direct E-to-F conversion program; converting their 20+ year veteran E-models into zero-time, factory-certified F-models.
“Now, perhaps more than ever, we are honored to be attending ALEA as an affirmation of our support for and commitment to this country’s law enforcement community,” said Craig Kitchen, Chief Commercial Officer for MD Helicopters. “Air Units play a key role in a growing number of law enforcement missions.
Our aircraft are proven performers in the execution of these missions; with unmatched reliability, efficiency, value, and ease of operation.”
In addition to showcasing one of the Gwinnett County Police Aviation Unit MD 530F model helicopters, representatives from MDHI’s marketing, business development, and aftermarket & customer support teams will be on-hand to discuss a number of the company’s current and future programs including:
- E-to-F Model Conversions
- New glass engine instrumentation for single engine aircraft
- Performance improvements in our NOTAR fleet
- Enhancements to the MyMD.aero customer support portal
- MGTOW increase for the MD 530F
