MDHI Contracts with Unitech Composites and ACT Aerospace

October 04 2021

MD Helicopters, Inc. (MDHI) signed new contracts with Unitech Composites and ACT Aerospace to improve production and spare parts availability for the MD 902, MD 520N, and MD 600N aircraft.
Coracides and the MDHI teams in the supply chain, quality, and engineering departments worked closely to qualify these new parts suppliers.
MDHI contracted with Unitech Composites of Hayden, Idaho, to supply pitch cases, flex beams, and main rotor blades for the MD 902. The pitch cases have been in production for several months, and MDHI already has over two dozen in stock. MDHI expects flex beams to be in stock this summer. Additionally, all proven MD 902 rotor blade tooling is now located at Unitech’s facility and used for blade manufacturing. Once appropriate development articles and qualification testing is complete, MDHI expects rotor blades to be in stock in 2022.
MDHI contracted with ACT Aerospace of Gunnison, Utah, to manufacture the MD 520N and MD 600N tail boom and empennage. MDHI has transferred all production tooling necessary for these parts’ manufacture to ACT Aerospace. Spares of each of these parts are expected to be delivered to MDHI’s Mesa facility this fall.
