Louisiana-based Metro Aviation has received foreign-Part 145 approval from EASA for its repair station and completion center. Located in Shreveport, the company is an approved Airbus Helicopter-approved service center specializing in the EC135 and EC145 and is a worldwide provider of completion services for all missions and rotorcraft types.
To achieve this EASA authorization, Metro met the steps of the process, including technical familiarization and certification, the establishment of the certification process, compliance demonstration and technical closure/issue of approval.“With the addition of this rating, we will be able to better support repair approval for our EU customers who are using any of Metro Aviation's STC/PMA products,” noted Milton Geltz, the company’s managing director.
Privately-owned Metro Aviation has also developed several STCs for many air medical components and installations, including fixed- and rotary-wing, and has aircraft or aircraft parts on six continents. It is also one of the largest FAA Part 135 air medical operators in the U.S.
