Md530 F External Lifting Capabilities

Recommended Posts

Hi - Just wondering if anybody knows ( from experience) how much a MD 530 F is able to lift external. We are looking to purchase one but we need to run some numbers.

1600lbs. with 1 hour fuel and a 220lbs pilot in the winter below 4000` - possible?

I remember 3 barrells jet fuel, 200 lb pilot and 1 hour fuel at 5000 DA on a regular basis. Not sure if the charts say that.

Just think about this.......a "lift", may entail hovering "OGE", for an "extended period of time!!???

Thanks - I was considering using it on seismic - 6 3D bags plus 150` line and carousel approx. 1600lbs.

Even at sea level on a standard day.....that would be marginal!

The advantage of a 530F is better hot-and-high performance than a 500D.

 

Your job doesn't sound like the time of year or altitude for this ship's benefits.

 

I think I hear an A-star coming..........
