Alvaro Stamato, chief pilot of OCEAN Explorer de Brasil, said: “The size and organisation of Metro Aviation is impressive, but what caught my attention was the professionalism and friendliness of the staff.”

“Even better was that Metro completed the contracted work prior to the deadline, including meeting the export requirements to Brazil,” added Stamato.

The EC155 helicopter was configured to the customer specifications and will accommodate twelve passengers and two pilots. The corporate/VIP helicopter also includes fitted carpet and leather interior panels.
