Metro Aviation recently delivered a new Eurocopter AS350 to EagleMed as the result of a base expansion in Cody, WY. The aircraft was completed at Metro’s headquarters in Shreveport, LA.
The AS350 is equipped with Metro’s EMS kit that includes the transfill oxygen system with two outlets, medical inverter system, flip up seats, and LEMS litter. The aircraft will be used for medical evacuations within 150 to 200 miles of the base and provides a non-stop range of 350 miles.
“We choose Metro Aviation to medically configure all of our AS350 aircraft for critical care air medical transports,” says Larry Bugg, president of EagleMed LLC. “Metro Aviation has proven over time to be a very reliable partner that consistently provides exceptional workmanship and quality customer care.”
With the delivery of EagleMed’s AS350, Metro Aviation is on schedule to deliver 35 new aircraft this year.
