The helicopter industry was first introduced to the 145e at the Heli-Expo in 2015 when Metro Aviation was announced as the launch customer for the aircraft with an initial order of six helicopters. Fast forward to 2018 and Metro has ordered an unprecedented 25 EC145e aircraft. Now in 2020, Metro has nearly sold out of those 25 with another large order on the horizon.
With support from Metro Aviation, Genesys AeroSystems and S-TEC established an STC for the aircraft in February 2019. The IFR platform incorporates the latest HeliSAS/EFIS technology, including the Genesys AeroSystems IDU-650 EFIS as well as three-axis Autopilot. Genesys AeroSystems and Metro earned Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) certification for the Genesys IFR avionics suite in November 2020.
