Ready for any challenge

Belonging to the MD 500 series, the MD 530F is a five-place, single-engine, multi-purpose helicopter with a fully-articulated five-blade main rotor system, and a two-blade tail rotor for anti-torque.

Equipped with a 650 shp Rolls-Royce Model 250-C30 turboshaft engine, the MD 530F is extremely effective in hot-day and high-altitude operation.

It's typical mission profile includes executive and personnel transport, air medical services, airborne law enforcement, along with many other operations where it's class-leading performance is a required asset.

Maximum speed: 152 knots (175 mph, 282 km/h)
Cruise speed: 125 knots (144 mph, 232 km/h)
Range: 375 miles(605 km)

Top of its class

This release brings together everything you've come to expect from Milviz: extremely detailed modelling and refined graphical excellence, superb night lighting, smoothly modelled gauges, highly accurate systems, realistic avionics and excellent flight dynamics. As with all of our releases, our goal with the 530F is to get you as close as possible to the real machine.

  • Custom DX10/DX11 night lighting
  • Custom configuration utility to set model and avionics options per livery

Choose your fit

Like the workhourse that the real 530 is, the Milviz 530F can be configured with several optional equipment configurations. Included with your purchase, these options give you the flexibility to outfit your 530 to match real-world tasks. Selectable options include:

  • Top and Bottom Wire Cutters
  • Cargo Hook
  • Night Sun
  • FLIR Camera
  • Carry Pod
  • Emergency Floats
While the Cargo Hook, FLIR Camera and the Carry Pod are purely cosmetic options for your helicopter, the Night Sun is completely controllable through key commands, and the Emergency Floats really do their job, allowing you to land on water without sinking.

In addition, all options are able to be set per livery through our Aircraft Configuration Manager, allowing you to outfit your 530 fleet in any way you want.

Choose your radios

With the Milviz 530F, we've tailored our avionics panel around the idea of choice. Included with the helicopter is our own very highly detailed GNS units, but we've also crafted one-click compatibility for a range of popular third party GPS add-ons:

  • Reality XP 530 GNS
  • Reality XP 430 GNS
  • Mindstar 530 GNS
  • Mindstar 430 GNS
  • Flight1 750 GTN
  • Flight1 650 GTN

Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and set-up of our product only; use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. In addition, any gauges we list compatibility for are not included with the Milviz 530F.

Use of any third party avionics package in any desired simulator is also of course restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers' websites for platform compatibility.

Choose your livery

We are very pleased to provide with this package one of the largest selections of liveries we've ever offered, created not only by our own talented artists, but also by some of the best texture artists in the flight sim community. A choice between 18 highly detailed liveries means that you get a wide variety of helicopters to take your next flight in!

Stand-alone Configuration Manager

This package includes our Aircraft Configuration Manager, a stand-alone program which allows you to easily set your preferred options per livery. Not only are choices available pertaining to gauge placement and external option visibility, but you are also able to set your preference between having the helicopter load in a 'Cold and Dark' state, or having it load up with the blades spinning, ready to fly.

The ability of setting these options per livery means that you don't have to choose a single static set-up for your entire hangar; you can configure any livery with any combination of options in order to always have a 530 ready for whatever you have the time for!

Updated with optional Force Trim

To use the new Force Trim option, use the AMS and click on the new 'Controls' section for the 530, and assign a key or button to the Force Trim trigger.

When you are in the cockpit, you must enable the Force Trim by using the two previously unused switches labelled OVSPD TEST and FAULT TEST (see picture below.) The one on the left turns on the Force Trim system when in the UP position. The one on the right enables the Force Trim to work with the rudder too when UP.

With a key assigned in AMS and both switches up, a press on the Force Trim button will make the current cyclic and rudder petal settings the new centre point. Thus as soon as you press Force Trim, return the joystick (and rudder if you have that switch up) to the neutral position. The helicopter should retain its current trim. You can use Force Trim as often as you like.

In case you are unfamiliar with it: Force Trim is not an autopilot! Be sure the helicopter is in a stable condition when you push the button. If it's rotating or banking, you'll simply lock in that trend and have to fight it. (This is how it really works; it takes some getting used to.)

This can take a great deal of the work out of flying. The real MD530 did not have a Force Trim, we're adding it as a optional 'quality of life' enhancement.

The Milviz 530F package also now includes add-on and avionics options that were, at one time, seperate purchases. These have now been included in the installer. In addition, the 530 installer also has a new format that eases installation, letting the user select what avionics options are to be installed.

Important: Please note that all of the current default analogue and digital avionic equipment installed in Milviz's general aviation aircraft and helicopters is based on underlying simulator code and, as such, is subject to various deficiencies which cannot be addressed by their team. This includes the GNS 530 / 430 units, audio panel, transponder, ADF unit, and nav/com radios. Due to the inherent limitations present in the simulator, MilViz is therefore unable to provide fixes or support for any issues related to the operation or functionality of these items at this time.

System Requirements:

  • Prepar3D v4
  • Processor: Intel i5 or AMD equivalent 2.6 Ghz or higher
  • Memory: 4 GB RAM
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Graphics: DirectX11 compliant video card, 1GB video RAM or higher
  • Hard Drive: 1.2GB available space
  • Functioning gaming controller such as a joystick for proper operation
  • Internet connection is required for product activation
