Hard on the heels of a successful Dubai Air Show, Quest Aviation Solutions announces it is broadening its relationship with MD Helicopters and effective immediately will take on sales of its Multi Mission family of helicopters in both India and China. Quest will support India and China from its sales offices in Bangalore and Beijing.
“We are delighted to have been appointed by MD Helicopters as their agent in China and India to complement our exclusive sales status role in the UAE for the MD product range,” said Quest Aviation Commercial Director Mike Creed. “Both of these markets have vast potential, especially for special missions such as EMS and police applications and we look forward to selling these extraordinary helicopters to two of the fastest growing markets in Asia.“
Quest, working in close association with MD Helicopters, which also plans to open an office in China next year, will also explore commercial opportunities for destinations that are easily accessible by helicopter, but difficult by other means of transport.
MD Helicopters’ multi mission family – the 500, 600 and 902 Explorer series – all feature the unique and exclusive “NOTAR” technology (no tail rotor), affording owner and operator pilots a completely safe and quiet operational solution, essential requirements for policing and EMS roles. This will be a very strong selling point in these safety conscious markets, noted Mike Creed.
“We are extremely satisfied with our new partner Quest Aviation Solutions and look forward to broadening our relationship with them beyond the UAE into India and China,” said Perry Orr, MD Helicopters Director, Middle East and Africa.
