Metro Aviation, November 02, 2021 - Shreveport, LA - - Metro Aviation is participating in SHIFT AMTC 2021 in Fort Worth.

Metro’s booth at the air medical conference will feature a new EC145e for AU Health AirCare, one of Metro’s newest operations customers, and a refurbished EC145 for TriStar SkyLife. Both aircraft were outfitted at Metro’s completion center in Shreveport, Louisiana.

AU Health AirCare is based in Augusta, Georgia, and transports patients to both AU Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Georgia. The aircraft is equipped with Metro’s signature EMS interior that is well-known throughout the industry.

Metro’s completion of TriStar SkyLife’s EC145, operated by Med-Trans Corporation, consisted of refurbishing, and updating the entire interior to TriStar’s specifications as well as changing the exterior to TriStar’s recognizable brand. This aircraft can fit a total of six personnel and is equipped with ECMO capabilities.

Staff from both programs will be at Metro’s booth to answer questions and demonstrate aircraft capabilities.

Metro began its two-decades-long relationship with STAT MedEvac with the completion of their EC135 in 1997. In 2019, Metro became the first to STC a medical interior for Airbus’ H135 T3H variant with Helionix. STAT MedEvac’s H135 features a medical mount rack that was designed in conjunction with STAT’s very own Jim Houser and can hold a Hamilton vent, Zoll X-series, and two E Cylinders. It will be prominently displayed on the Airbus booth.

In addition, the Metro-completed VCU 145e featuring Metro’s air medical interior will be on display at the Global Medical Response booth.

Metro is also launching its all-new EC145e configurator. Booth attendees can easily change paint schemes and colors, as well as place equipment inside the aircraft’s cabin, creating a custom aircraft that Metro can make a reality.

During AMTC’s Opening Exhibit, Sunday afternoon, Metro will welcome illusionist Kevin King for Spirits and Spells from 5pm to 6:30pm. His mind-bending tricks have been impressing Metro customers for years, and often include cash for lucky onlookers.

The Metro team will also host its annual Press Event on Monday, Nov. 1 at 1pm, inviting attendees to celebrate company and customer milestones with mimosas on the booth. All of these events and more are happening on booth #325 during Shift AMTC 2021, Oct. 31 – Nov. 2.
