Mesa, Ariz., March 10, 2022 — MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) has entered an exclusive five-year maintenance agreement with Houston Police Department to perform drive train component maintenance for the department’s eight MD500E helicopters.

“MD Helicopters has a long and sustained history of delivering the proven capabilities and technically advanced helicopters modern law enforcement requires to protect its citizens while ensuring safety for its officers,” says Nick Nenadovic, Vice President of Aftermarket and Customer Support at MD Helicopters. “This long-term agreement emphasizes trust in MDHI to deliver superior service and expertise to keep Houston Police Department Air Support Unit flying their critical missions.”

The eight MD Helicopters MD500E from Houston Police Department’s Air Support Unit provides a variety of law enforcement, public support, and safety operations in its aircraft. These include patrol flights, support for high-speed pursuits, call-for-service response, perimeter control support, homeland security site checks, security flights for the ship channel and Port of Houston, live video-downlink for major fire scenes, covert aerial surveillance, dignitary protection, photo evidence gathering, post-storm damage assessment, and SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) officer insertion and extraction.


The MD500E helicopter delivers the highest speed, payload and productivity in its class. With a five-bladed main rotor and your choice of a 420-shp Rolls-Royce 250-C20B or 450-shp Rolls-Royce 250-C20R turbine engine, the MD 500E offers unparalleled versatility for the broadest range of customer-defined missions.

The capability and sophistication of the MD500E is the best-in-class low price and basic equipment level aircraft. The large, flat floor provides plenty of room for cargo, and the useful internal load of 1,519 pounds (689 kg) is ideally suited for most utility operations. Delivering high speed, payload and productivity with low direct operating cost, the MD500E is a single-engine helicopter impressive for its responsive agility and reliability.
