represents in Italy MD Helicopters which produces three different series
of turbine helicopters (500, 600 and Explorer) each with numerous variants and
configurations to meet the needs of the executive transport as well as those of
EMS and aerial work for civil, military and police operations. These helicopters
are characterized by the Notar© system.
MD 600N is a
light utility civilian helicopter. It is a stretched eight-seat development of
the five-seat MD520N helicopter. McDonnell Douglas stretched the MD 520N
fuselage by inserting a plug aft of the cockpit/cabin bulkhead and stretching
the NOTAR tail boom. The larger fuselage allows for an extra (middle) row of
seats. Other differences compared with the MD 520N include a new six blade main
rotor (the MD 520N has a five blade unit).
