HeliHub.com understands that the Hungarian Police (local name Rendőrség) have bought a batch of five MD902 Explorers from a German police force. The five have been acquired from the Baden-Wurttemberg Police, who are taking delivery of six H145 helicopters from Airbus, and are the first law enforcement operator of that type.
The five Explorers – the first of which was delivered on Thursday 14th July, were purchased in 2003 – four new aircraft and one pre-owned from a German operator. It is this latter one – serial 900-0052 – which has been delivered so far and will carry the Hungarian Police registration of R-900. It is likely that the other four will be R-901 to R-904.
An example of one in the colours of Baden-Wurttemberg Police is shown below
