Louisiana-based Metro Aviation has ordered an additional 12 new EC145e helicopters from Airbus, announced at the Heli Expo trade show in Anaheim, California. This deal brings Metro Aviation’s total number of ordered EC145e helicopters to 43.
Metro Aviation operates air medical helicopters and airplanes for healthcare providers and is a global leader for multi-mission helicopter customization.
Metro was the first customer for the EC145e when Airbus Helicopters launched the simplified, lower-weight variant in 2015. In 2019, Airbus Helicopters delivered the first EC145e, locally produced at its industrial facility in Columbus, Miss. U.S.A., where the remaining EC145e aircraft for Metro will also be produced.Email Post to a Friend
