C-30 Upgrade for Notar

Recommended Posts

The rumor I heard was the C30 was the original engine choice for the 520.  They opted for a smaller motor with better fuel economy due to the lack of availabe fuel storage in the 520. I think you could only stay airborne for an hour and a half. It also drove the hourly costs up past what MD thought the market would pay for that size helicopter.  Rumor only, not sure how much truth there is to it, but it sounds reasonable.
