Testimonial

I believe AvBuyer is the best medium for advertising aircraft and do get a lot of leads from the listings. We even get reminders to reply to inquiries, which is better than the competition.

Scott Wagner, Helicopter Marketing Associates, LLC

As a first-time user of AvBuyer I was not sure of the exposure, or support I would receive with my listing. When I reached out to a former fellow Vermonter David Olcott, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing AvBuyer as our marketing platform. It could not have been easier. The day the posting went up, there were so many people sending inquiries I could not believe it!

MD 902 Explorer Turbine Helicopter Overview

By Gerrard Cowan


Initially, the MD 902 was equipped with two Pratt & Whitney PW206E engines, but these were later replaced with more powerful Pratt & Whitney PW207E engines.

The MD Explorer has carved out a significant position in the market since its certification in 1994, with particular interest among para-public and commercial operators, as well as private operators.

The MD 902 can transport 6-7 passengers (though usually four in executive configuration) with 1-2 crew members, and has a range of 215nm according to Conklin & de Decker.

What features does the MD 902 offer?
The MD 902 Explorer uses a graphite composite NOTAR (No Tail Rotor) anti-torque system, helping reduce noise and overall helicopter vibrations, and eliminating tail rotor strikes.

 It uses the flow of fan-driven low-pressure air through two tail boom slots and a direct-jet thruster in conjunction with two vertical stabilizers to provide required anti-torque and directional control.


What came before and after the MD 902?
Prior to introduction of the MD 902, the MD 900 Explorer was the first aircraft in its series, and was one of the first helicopters to adopt Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PW200-series engines.

The MD 902 followed, advancing the aircraft in a range of aspects (detailed below).

MD Helicopters manufactures a range of other commercial helicopters aimed, in part, at the VIP/corporate markets, including the MD 500E and the MD 600N light helicopters.
