MD 600N Brochure PDF 5.6 MB Technical Description


The MD 600N is an eight-place, light, single-turbine engine helicopter that provides high performance and increased capacity to give the customer greater versatility; all with dramatically low operating costs. It flies faster, hovers higher, and provides the agility and exceptional handling for which the MD 500-series is known.


An independent safety study has shown that 21% of all helicopter accidents are related to tail rotor failure or impact with an external object. By eliminating the tail rotor, the NOTAR® system eliminates that danger. This feature also adds a significant margin of safety for ground personnel, particularly in confined landing areas.


MD Helicopters has built a reputation for extraordinary design and exceptional performance. Equally important is our dedication to customer support. At MDHI, our long-term success is built upon our passion for superior products, innovative thinking, and operational processes that are sharply focused on the needs of our customers.


The single-turbine MD 600N is a proven performer for a wide variety of mission requirements: executive transport, law enforcement, electronic news gather, utility operations, aerial survey, and as a light observation helicopter for military missions. With its advanced NOTAR® anti-torque system, the MD 600N is a member of an exclusive class of the safest, quietest helicopters in the world.
