Metro Aviation employs pilots to fly for hospital-based programs across the United States. We currently operate more than 130 aircraft for over 35 programs. The majority of Metro’s fleet is rotorcraft, with a few programs flying both rotor-wing and fixed-wing.
We require 2,000 hours (2,500 fixed-wing) for PIC positions and 1000 hours for SIC positions, as well as 500 hours of cross country flight time and 100 hours of night flight time.
Aviation Maintenance Technicians are essential to keeping our rotors turning. Technicans must have a current FAA Airframe and Power Plant Mechanic Certificate and at least three years of experience working with turbine-powered rotor or fixed wing. Inspection Authorization and Part 135 field experience is a plus.
Operational Control Specialists
The Operational Control Center (OCC) shares flight responsibility for Part 135 Helicopter Air Ambulance (HAA) Operations. Our personnel are required to be well versed in FAA regulations, HAA operations, company manuals, and aeronautical weather to help keep our pilots safe and efficient.
Metro is an FAA Certified Airframe Modification, Maintenance, Inspection, and Repair center with over 70,000 square feet of hangar and production space. We provide tip-to-tail support and employ engineers, avionics installers, painters, sheet metal professionals, and more.
Many of our completion center employees have FAA Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certifications, and some also maintain an Inspection Authorization (IA).
Metro can not operate without our support staff. We employ a number of inventory specialists, records personnel, and administrative roles to keep the blades turning.
