Transport Canada awards certificate to MD900 Explorer
MD Helicopters has announced
that Transport Canada has approved the MD900 for day/night, VFR operation in Canada. With
this Canadian approval, the MD900 has now been certified for operation in fifty
countries, since its introduction in 1994.
The certification is a
significant step forward towards earning full approval for the newer MD
Explorer 902 configuration with Pratt & Whitney 206E and 207E Engines and
IFR STC operation. This approval for the upgraded aircraft is expected in the
next few months.
The NOTAR system makes the
MD Explorer the most quiet and safest helicopter in its class. The MD Explorer
is certified by the FAA, China’s
CAAC and Europe’s EASA for Category A and
single pilot instrument flight rule (IFR) operations.
