metro presence stretches wide at heli-expo
March 4, 2019
Metro Aviation continues to reinforce its presence in the helicopter industry with an interactive booth display at HELI-EXPO from March 4-7, 2019, in Atlanta, Ga.
The booth will include two mission-ready, EMS helicopters: one from Wake Forest Baptist Health and the other from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Metro Aviation aims to highlight the configuration opportunities by showcasing how current operations customers utilize their aircraft. Representatives from each program will be onsite to talk about their respective helicopters, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for an EC145e and Wake Forest Baptist Health for an EC135P2+.
These helicopters highlight Metro Aviation’s continued market leadership and unmatched capabilities. The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta aircraft marked the first EC145e delivery and in 2018, Metro and PAC International, A Metro Aviation Company, procured and refurbished three EC135P2+ helicopters for Wake’s AirCare program.
Metro is also continuing its partnership with Kopter, showcasing it’s third engineered and manufactured interior for the SH09. The seven-seat transport configuration can be seen on Kopter’s booth during HELI-EXPO. In addition, the next-generation Airbus H160 is debuting a new Metro-designed medical interior concept specifically adapted for the need of air medical operations in North America. Airbus will also showcase an H125, completed by Metro Aviation, for Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department.
Expo attendees can experience the aircraft features first-hand and speak to configuration specialists about all the specifications. Visit Metro Aviation on booth #C1023 to learn more.
