Metro delivers ec145e to University of Utah
Metro Aviation completed the delivery of the first EC145e to the University of Utah Health AirMed program, which is part of what the company describes as one of its largest commercial helicopter orders.
Metro’s completion centre, located in Shreveport, Louisiana, outfitted the lightweight helicopter with mission-specific gear tailored to hot environments, high altitude conditions and avalanche rescues. Additionally, the aircraft features standard air ambulance equipment, which AirMed plans to utilize for mechanical circulatory support and bariatric support.
“We’re excited about the increased capabilities of this aircraft. It will be stationed at our Park City base, so having the increased lift is what we’re most excited about,” said AirMed program manager Frankie Toon. “This aircraft will also give us over-water capabilities, which increases our straight-line distance.”
The new aircraft replaces a Bell 407 helicopter and joins AirMed’s fleet of two PC-12s, three BH 407s and an IFR-equipped EC145.
