Q: Is this the same helicopter listed like two times before? Why does it keep getting relisted? (6/16/22 12:37 AM)
A: This is the 3rd of 3 MD 530 FF's. (6/21/22 2:03 PM)

Q: Can I get a point of contact, Director of Maintenance, to ask some technical questions regarding components installed? (6/22/22 4:00 PM)
A: I will forward your questions or put you in touch with the appropriate person. Thanks (6/22/22 4:03 PM)
Q: Can you tell me if the aircraft has an ADSB? If so, what kind? (6/23/22 9:43 AM)
A: ADSB out only The Garmin GPS / Garmin 330 Transponder (6/23/22 4:16 PM)
Q: With reference to the commercial engine bulletin 72-3299 revised on 4-12-19, can you tell me if replacement of the oil delivery tube was completed on the engine gear box assembly? (6/23/22 9:43 AM)
A: Send me an email request to and I'll send you a list of the current CEB's for this gearbox. (6/23/22 4:33 PM)
Q: On the component sheet provided, it shows the fuel control removed. Has it been replaced, and if so, can you provide P/N and TBO? Also, since the aircraft hasn't flown in nearly 2.5 years, was any preservation completed prior to storage? (6/28/22 7:36 PM)
A: The fuel control that is currently installed results in a "hung start" during the first start of the day. The unit would need to be repaired. The TSO is 161.9 hours. As far as preservation, the fuel and battery were removed, but everything else has oil. (6/30/22 4:39 PM)
Q: Why is this aircraft the worst of the 3? (7/8/22 2:34 PM)
A: I wouldn't classify this as the "worst" of anything. This helicopter was mission-capable on the last day it was flown. You are welcome to come take a look anytime before the auction closes. You will have access to the aircraft and all airframe and engine log books with records dating back to the day it was purchased by the Sheriff's Department. Thanks. (7/9/22 10:25 PM)
