Mesa, Ariz.-based MD Helicopters recently delivered helicopters to separate law enforcement agencies—the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Pasadena Police Department in California. Las Vegas Metro received a new MD530F, which joins the unit’s four other MD530Fs and one MD500D. The 530F features a 650-shp Rolls-Royce 230-C30 engine and longer main rotor blades than the 500E. Pasadena PD chose the MD500E to supplement its aerial law enforcement operations. Features include a FLIR camera, NightSun SX-16 searchlight, Paravion ARS moving map and TDFM 7000 tactical radio system. (From September 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
