Metro Aviation became the first company to STC a medical interior for Airbus’ H135 T3H variant with Helionix. Outfitted for STAT MedEvac, Metro explains the STC includes aspects of Metro’s standard air medical package with equipment standardized and modernized to match the program’s existing fleet of aircraft.
The two-decade-long relationship between Metro and STAT MedEvac began with the EC135 in 1997. STAT MedEvac’s new H135 T3H configuration accommodates a care team of up to three medical personnel. The aircraft joins a fleet of 17 helicopters, all outfitted with the latest in aviation technology.
Metro explains the spacious interior and abundant payload capacity of the H135 is well suited for an EMS configuration, with the STC allowing air medical customers to transport critical care patients safely and efficiently. Features like clamshell doors and ambulance-like loading systems make that possible.
