May 21, 2020
Metro Aviation is pleased to announce Brian Bihler as the company’s new Director of Operations. Brian will work closely with the Safety and Training departments to oversee the daily aviation operations for Metro’s 36 air medical customers and more than 140 aircraft.
“Brian has been with the Metro family for just over a decade, and we have a tremendous amount of trust in his leadership and decision making,” said Metro COO Kenny Morrow. “I know he will manage our operations department as safely and efficiently as possible.”
Brian joined Metro as a Line Pilot for the Allegheny Life Flight program in 2009, later taking on the roles of Regional Check Airman, Pilot Training Manager, Assistant Chief Pilot, and, most recently, Chief Pilot. Brian holds a Rotorcraft ATP certificate, FAA Gold Seal Flight Instructor rating, and is a Part 135 Check Airman. Prior to entering the air ambulance industry in 2007, he served as an Officer and Pilot in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Aviation Unit.
He has gone above and beyond during his time at Metro, and we are excited for what he will bring to this new role.
