Longtime completion leader, Metro Aviation, Inc. will showcase their latest comprehensive EC145 customization for the Virginia State Police Med Flight during the upcoming Airborne Law Enforcement Association (ALEA) Annual Conference and Exposition.Â The venue begins this week on Wednesday 20 July 2011 and runs through Friday 22 July at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Metro Aviation received a competitive bid award to provide wide-ranging completion services to the State of Virginia for their two new EC145 helicopters received in a â€œgreenâ€ condition.Â The aircraft is one of a limited few operated in the United States in a dual role of AMS and law enforcement and is equipped with a full complement of tactical communications equipment, hoist and other law enforcement equipment along with complete medical mission package. Additional features include a single pilot IFR cockpit and night vision compatible pilot and crew stations.Â The aluminum air medical floor designed and manufactured by the company now includes longitudinal aircraft datum reference points milled into the surface to aid crews in quickly determining weight and balance parameters during hoist operations. Conversion from an air medical role to an airborne law enforcement mission can be accomplished quickly and easily.
The Virginia State Police EC145 will be exhibited on the Metro Aviation booth #315 during the ALEA Conference and Exposition in New Orleans.
