Metro Aviation has contracted the purchase of six EC145e variants and will showcase the aircraft during a North American demo tour with Airbus Helicopters. The tour is intended to demonstrate the FAA- and EASA-certified aircraft's air medical, law enforcement, utility and other mission capabilities with a lower price point and increased payload. The first phase of the tour will run through September, with demonstration flights planned for Oct. 19 to 21 during the Air Medical Transport Conference in Long Beach, California. A second phase will begin after the AMTC and continue through mid-November.
