American Eurocopter has reached an agreement to supply a dozen helicopters to Shreveport, La.-based Metro Aviation. The MoU covers a mix of types—EC130s, EC135s and EC145s. The fleet additions will help expand Metro’s Aircraft Operations division. Metro currently operates 71 aircraft, 61 of which are Eurocopter variants. Separately, Metro will install an EMS interior on an EC145 for Sentara Norfolk General Hospital’s Nightingale Regional Air Ambulance. Completions will take place in Shreveport, with delivery projected in March 2011. (From December 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
