    Metro Aviation, May 13, 2020 - Shreveport, LA – Metro recently delivered two refurbished AS350 B3 aircraft to the Ministry of Security of the Province of Buenos Aires ( Policia Bonaerense )

    The refurbishments included mandated 12-year inspections of the aircraft.

    “This 12-year inspection involved a lot of moving parts and attention to detail, so we’re excited to put this helicopter back into service for the Province of Buenos Aires,” said Amy McMullen, Metro’s customer configuration coordinator. “Expanding our partnership within Argentina has proven to cement our relationship with the country.”

    The overhauls involved many comprehensive repairs.
