Hungarian Police Air Support introduces MD902 to fleet

The Hungarian National Police has added five MD902 Explorer helicopters to its fleet. The aircraft are based at Liszt Ferenc Airport in Budapest. 

The air support unit also includes three MD 500E helicopters. The MD902s have been acquired to replace an ageing Mi-2 fleet.

General Karoly Papp, head of the National Police, as well as a number of senior National Police officials along with representation from the Hungarian government were on hand to witness the January 26 arrival of the aircraft.

“We are proud to celebrate the addition of not just one, but five MD 902 helicopters to the Hungarian National Police fleet.”

Randall Schaffer, director, Aftermarket Business Development & Customer Engagement for MD Helicopters said: “We are proud to celebrate the addition of not just one, but five MD 902 helicopters to the Hungarian National Police fleet. The Hungarian National Police have been part of the MDHI family for more than 30 years. We could not have been more excited when we were informed they had decided to add the MD 902 to their fleet.”

“Like the MD 500E, the MD 902 is deeply rooted in a commitment to safety, reliability, and superior performance. The MD 902 truly does set the standard for affordability, dependability and safety for light and medium-twin engine helicopters. We congratulate the Hungary National Police on their newest additions, and are excited to know our aircraft will play an ongoing role in the Country’s security and safety,” added Schaffer.
