Metro Aviation Looks Ahead To Record Year

Company Credits Development Of Air Medical Interiors For Eurocopters

In contrast to many corners of the aviation services industry, Metro Aviation says it continues to book new aircraft completions and sign new operating customers for what it expects to be a record year for business.

The projection comes on the heels of the first air medical EC155 completions in North America for the University of Michigan Survival Flight. Metro has recently signed contracts to complete two new EC145 helicopters in air medical configuration for Duke University with the first aircraft scheduled to begin customization at the Metro facility in early November. Additionally, Metro will soon begin delivery of the first of three EC145s being completed for Sanford Health in North Dakota.

Metro Aviation has added four new air medical operating programs to its portfolio this year with eight new EC130s for Med Flight of Ohio, five EC145s for Indiana University (IU) Health System LifeLine, and with Children’s Medical Center of New Orleans, and Norfolk, VA-based Nightingale, both operating EC145s. All these aircraft were completed by Metro Aviation, Inc.

Metro notes it was the first helicopter completion specialist to create a new air medical interior not only for the EC135 and EC145, but recently for the EC155B1 with operational check flights scheduled for these aircraft within the next two weeks. The company also pioneered the its own Single Pilot IFR (SPIFR) package for the EC135 and EC145 and says it has completed more of these models than any other aftermarket completion facility in the world.
