MD Helicopter has appointed Quest Aviation Solutions as exclusive sales agent in the UAE. Both MD Helicopter and Quest Aviation Solutions gave the MD902 Explorer helicopter its debut at the Dubai Air Show 2013, which finished on 21 November.

Quest’s territory will cover the Emirates of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ras-al-Khaimah and Fujairah.

The Explorer is now flying all over the world in Police, Medevac (HEMS), VIP, Offshore and utility Missions and for sale at just over $6 million, plus clients’ desired options. The 500, 600 and 902 series of MD Helicopters all have the innovative “NOTAR” (No Tail Rotor) technology which allows for safer and quieter operational missions, which are essential requirements for Policing and EMS roles.

“We very much look forward to securing new sales in the UAE, mirroring the success MD Helicopters has achieved in other equally demanding markets,” said Mike Creed, commercial director of Quest. “After a slow couple of years the appetite for general business aviation and Multi Mission Light helicopters has improved significantly in the UAE.”

“MD has not been pro-active in the UAE for a few years now, owing to a targeted strategy in other global regions. But now, with this new partnership with Quest, which will be dedicated to promoting the unique characteristics of our helicopters, as well as the excellent relationship we enjoy with the company’s directors and Mike Creed, we are confident we have the right partner to deliver sales success in the region,” said Perry Orr, MD Helicopters director, Middle East and Africa.
