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 today and Metro has ordered an unprecedented 43 EC145e aircraft. As of May 2023, 33 of those aircraft are in service, and the remaining are undergoing completion or awaiting production.
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.
