New Litter Installations Unveiled By Metro Aviation

Enhancement Available For EC145

Helicopter completions company Metro Aviation has introduced some enhancements to the EC145 air medical interior, including the capability to now use the Ferno Model 28A1 litter assembly with ground ambulances. The adaptation will allow the easy and safe transition between the aircraft mounting system to ground ambulances that utilize a Stryker or Ferno gurney system.  The company developed the common interface capability as the result of customer demand to allow greater flexibility and improved patient transfer capabilities between helicopters and ground ambulances.

Additionally, Metro has completed the successful preliminary testing to allow the use of the Stryker MX PRO gurney in the Metro Aviation EC145 air medical configuration. Milton Geltz, Managing Director for Metro commented, "Our Production Manager, Russell Garner and his highly experienced team are very excited about adding this capability to our long line of air medical options.  We understand the Stryker is preferred by many air medical operations and the challenge was to allow the use of the MX PRO without requiring a change to the restraint system that is already installed in the aircraft."   The MX PRO receives a base plate installation similar to the existing product line that allows the customer to use the MX PRO, the Ferno 28, 28 A1, and the Ferno 1123 based litter as well most of the specialty transport sleds, without change to the airframe.

Geltz further commented, "Since our first air medical completion for STAT MedEvac in 1996 , the goal has been to offer avionics, options and patient transport systems that allow the seamless use of our products for flight and medical crews.  We continue to accomplish these goals through constant and consistent product innovation and improvements."  Metro most recently performed comprehensive air medical completions on new EC145s for Clarion LifeLine of Indianapolis and Cleveland Metro Life Flight.
