MD530FF helicopter

1994 McDonnell Douglas Model MD530FF helicopter. Please carefully read the following to see why this aircraft is such an extraordinary value.

This MD530FF has only 50 hours TTSN and NO damage history. It is U.S. registered. After 50 hours, the engine was sent to Rolls Royce for their enhancement and surge kit upgrade certification program. The ship sat in the government's hanger until Rolls Royce completed the program a few years later. Although the government (its original owner) used some of this aircraft's parts in other MD530FFs, the enhanced engine was eventually reinstalled. With other parts missing, the helicopter went into storage.

All time-life parts have been replaced with either new parts or zero-time overhauled parts. Only the engine, with 50 hrs TTSN, will have  time registered, and it will have 0 time since enhancement and inspection. All engine accessories are zero time.

The helicopter is currently unpainted (its original paint had been stripped). Its selling price includes custom painting per the buyer's color choice. The avionics (all brand new) will be installed per the buyer's desired layout. (See proposed layout below, which is included in the selling price.)

All the windows are new. Delivery is 30 days plus 14 days for paint once a purchase agreement is in place. All transactions go through Ms. Debbie Mercer-Erwin, President, "Escrow Agent," Wright Brothers Aircraft Title Co., Oklahoma City, OK.
