Metro Aviation delivers fourth EC135 to Massachusetts State Police


Metro Aviation, December 30, 2014 - Metro Aviation and the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing have partnered since 2009 and Metro recently delivered the fourth EC135 to the department.

"Metro Aviation has integrated the FLIR, Aerocomputers, Helinet downlink and L-3 DVR to assist our crews supporting our public safety mission,” said Lt. Robert Smith, Unit Commander.

The modern technology and avionics installed on the twin-engine aircraft are essential tools for the Massachusetts State Police Air Wing.

The Air Wing responds to more than 1,900 mission requests each year and is often called upon to collaborate with state and local incident commanders for search missions, incident and scene assessment, aerial photography, or investigative support and surveillance.

“Working with the Massachusetts State police has been a true pleasure,” said Metro Managing Director Milton Geltz.

“They were very specific on the needs and specifications for their mission profile. The collaborative efforts resulted in a highly sophisticated, adaptable and manageable tool to perform the complex business of airborne surveillance.”

Metro Aviation specializes in law enforcement completions, as well as air medical, corporate and utility. The 160,000 square foot completion center in Shreveport, Louisiana houses departments for production, machining, avionics, paint and installation. Metro completes about 35 aircraft each year.
