Three Cobham business units are to provide critical components for six MD530F training helicopters bound for Shindand Air Base in Afghanistan, the company said today.


Via its partner, EDMO Distributors, Cobham Aerospace Communications will supply four N301A audio controllers; Cobham Antenna Systems will provide VHF communications, VOR/LOC/GS V-Dipole, DME, and Navigation Splitter Antennas, and Cobham Commercial Systems will supply an Artex C406-2HM emergency locator transmitter for each MD530F. 

John Payne, general manager, Cobham Aerospace Communications, said, “Our ruggedized, lightweight, high-performance components will deliver superior communication and navigation functionality, resulting in significantly enhanced safety in the high altitude/high temperature environment of Afghanistan.” 

It’s anticipated that up to 50 MD530F helicopters will be produced over the next three years.
