International Defense & Aerospace Group (IDAG) has received a single MD Helicopters Inc (MDHI) MD 530F rotorcraft to be used by the Slovak Training Academy (STA).
Delivery of the MD 530F to the Pennsylvania-based authorised sales agent was announced on 8 July, and will see the helicopter join five earlier model MD 500Es at the STA in Slovakia.
“Its primary role will be to support the tactical and NVG flight training needs of military and paramilitary helicopter pilots from around the world,” MDHI said in a statement.
As noted by MDHI, IDAG has been an authorised MDHI sales agent for select Central and Eastern European opportunities since 2017, focusing on the sale and service of specialty rotorcraft solutions to military and paramilitary operators. IDAG also provides training to global airborne law enforcement, military, and special forces operators.
