If you’ve ever watched the popular reality TV program “Cops,” then you know as soon as that “eye-in-the-sky” police helicopter spots the bad guys, its all over but the crying! With their super-high-intensity spotlights and electronic night-vision surveillance systems, police helicopters have revolutionized law enforcement’s ability to find and apprehend bad boys on the run. Several police departments across the country are now using the turbine-powered MD 520N for their flying squad cars. It’s a fast, agile and lightweight all-purpose helicopter. Equipped with a fully articulated, five-bladed main rotor and a NOTAR (no tail-rotor), anti-torque control system, the MD 520N boosts both increased ground safety and improved flight performance. With its 450hp 250-C20R Rolls-Royce engine and high payload-to-empty-weight ratio, it’s an ideal choice for airborne law enforcement. When you need to rapidly deploy S.W.A.T. units, the MD 520N excels at the task.
