MD Helicopters MD 500 Defender (FSX)


One of the world's most successful and useful light turbine helicopters, the Hughes/McDonnell Douglas/MD Helicopters 500 series began life as Hugheswon the US Army observation helicopter contest with the YOH-6A Cayuse, which first flew in February 1963.

The engineering and certification designation for all military and civil variants of this helicopter type is Hughes Model 369. It was offered in basic five and seven seat configurations.


From 1984, when McDonnell Douglas acquired Hughes Helicopters, the Hughes name disappeared and the 500E and 530F were built as the MD-500E and MD-530F Lifter.

Military variants are marketed under the MD-500 Defender name.

This is a fun little copter it's of course not as fast as the larger copters, but it makes it up in agility. The flight dynamics of this sim are great and the animations are so realistic, you would think you are really flying this bird. I just wish the military version had the new style avionics that the passenger model does. I use the gps a lot rather than the old school navigation. This is another great bird by the bros.

I noticed the doors do not open on this helicopter. I would like to know if there might be an upgrade
