Metro Aviation was incorporated in 1982 as a helicopter charter, flight training and maintenance operation. Our entry into the air medical service business came in November 1983 with two used Hughes 500-D model helicopters, when Metro Aviation entered into a long-term agreement to provide helicopter ambulance service for Schumpert Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Metro Aviation now has air medical transport operations throughout the United States. Hospitals sign long-term contracts with us because of the advantages of: 1) our commitment to safety, quality and customer service; 2) caps on price escalation; 3) our strong equity position; and 4) our commitment to minimizing aircraft downtime.
Our presence is evident for many air medical, law enforcement and other components and installations. We have developed and received FAA Supplemental Type Certificates (STC’s) for many air medical components and installations including fixed and rotor-wing. Quite often, Metro Aviation not only performs the installation, but purchases the aircraft and trains the ground and flight personnel.
Our foundation of safety, quality and customer service has remained with us for 35 years and is still the cornerstone of our company.
Metro Aviation celebrated 35 years in 2017 while reflecting on our traditional roots and our evolution into a global completion leader, reputable operator, state-of-the-art training center and trusted partner for companies across the world.
These are our stories. These are the experiences that made us who we are today.
Metro Aviation is constantly growing our capabilities and expanding our reach. Metro holds more than 30 Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) and completes about 35 aircraft each year for U.S. customers and global clients.
