MESA, Arizona, September 6th, 2023. MD Helicopters (MDH) has formed an Authorized Service Center Council representing its 40-member network in an effort to strengthen customer support for the MD Helicopters global fleet.

  • Thoroughbred Aviation in Kentucky, USA

  • SAS in Belgium
  • Hutt Aviation in New Zealand
