08 MAY 2018 - Shreveport, Louisiana – Metro Aviation recently delivered a completed H125 to the Government of Jujuy Province in Argentina. The multi-mission aircraft will be utilized for firefighting, air medical transportation and various civil patrol and ground support activities.
Jujuy’s H125 is equipped with a cargo swing, quick release cargo basket, Bambi bucket, rescue hoist, removable litter kit and law enforcement equipment to include an E.O.S (electroptic observation system) with a monitor and recorder onboard. “We are excited to once again partner with Argentina,” said Metro President Mike Stanberry. “This aircraft checks all the boxes for the Government of Jujuy and I know it will perform for years to come.”
