24-Apr-11

Local press reports suggest that Indianapolis Police are close to selling their MD600 with an overseas buyer inspecting it around now. This aviation unit ceased operations in October 2009 under budgetary pressure, putting its MD600 flagship, two Hughes 300s and an early Bell 206A into storage. A report in July 2010 cited public safety officials making a decision to sell the MD600 and the two Hughes aircraft in order to fund the required maintenance and ongoing operational costs to get the 206 back in the air.

Today the Indianapolis Police appears to have only one Hughes 300 registered to them, a 1977-build example registered N7478F, as well as the MD600 N500PD which they took delivery of in 2003 at a reported price of around $2M including role equipment. Selling these would leave them with a 1968-build Bell 206A registered N3399
