MD Helicopters received two orders for MD 530F helicopters from the Bolivian Ministry of the Interior during Heli-Expo 2014.

The helicopters will be operated by the Bolivian National Police to provide additional airborne security for the Ministry of the Interior. Delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2014.

“We are honored that the Bolivian government has selected the MD 530F to support their most demanding police and airborne security missions,” said Lynn Tilton, CEO of MD Helicopters.

“The MD 530F is the finest high-altitude, hot-day performer in the world. We look forward to providing exceptional support to the Bolivian National Police as they expand their airborne fleet with proven MD aircraft,” Tilton added.

MDHI has partnered with Helicopters de Bolivia to establish a service centre in Santa Cruz. The new service centre will open whe  the MD530F helicopters are delivered. The aircraft will be utilised during the upcoming G77 World Security conference in Santa Cruz.
