The aircraft is complete with a full EMS configuration, oper­ ational options, single pilot IFR and air conditioning. In addi­ tion, this aircraft is equipped with the internal 10 Liter LOX system. Metro Aviation, Inc. currently offers single and dual external gas as well as single external LOX systems.


Milton Geltz, Managing FEBRUARY 2012


Russell Garner, Metro Aviation, Inc. Production Manager added, “ The modifi­ cation was made easier due to Metro’s initial design of the cabinet anticipating the future needs of a customer such as Sanford Health.” Sanford Health plans to have this aircraft in service by the beginning of February at the Sioux Falls, ND location, replacing the Bell products currently in use for HEMS. The two additional aircraft are scheduled for delivery to the Sanford Heath in Fargo, ND in the first quarter of 2012. ◆
