First EMS-Configured EC155 B1 in U.S.

Metro Aviation Inc. is in the process of completing the first of three EC155 B1 aircraft for the University of Michigan Survival Flight. The aircraft will be the first EC155 B1 equipped and operated with an EMS package in the United States.

The first aircraft is currently in the painting phase of completion and is scheduled for review by Survival Flight Critical Care Manager, Denise Landis, at the end of the week. The EC155 B1 will be painted University of Michigan maize and blue, similar to the Bell 430 currently in service for Survival Flight.
