Metro Aviation delivers H135 to Collier County

13 October 2020 – Metro Aviation recently delivered an H135 T3H to Collier County’s Emergency Medical Services program.

“The arrival of the new aircraft will allow Collier County EMS to continue their mission of transporting critically injured trauma patients to a trauma center within the golden hour,” said Tabatha Butcher, chief of Collier County Emergency Medical Services (EMS).  “Collier County does not have a trauma center within the county and this aircraft provides us the ability to get patients to specialized care in a timely manner for the best possible outcome.”

Metro’s completion centre, located in Shreveport, Louisiana, outfitted the helicopter with a standard medical interior featuring a customized Mermaid Manufacturing Medi-Kool cabinet, Dual Pilot/Single Pilot IFR systems and a three-color polyurethane paint job. This helicopter updates the current fleet of one 20-year-old aircraft with various safety features like Outerlink’s best-in-class aviation software.

“Metro Aviation has been a great company to work with,” said Butcher. “They have involved us in the process all along and have been very flexible with any changes that have been needed. Their customer service is top notch and we look forward to the continued working relationship.”
