Metro Aviation has revealed the final H125 configuration for authorities located in Mendoza, Argentina.
Mendoza dignitaries accepted the aircraft on behalf of its police force, which received two H125 models from Metro Aviation. The Shreveport, Louisiana-based completion center outfitted the helicopters with a Bambi Bucket for firefighting, upgraded avionics systems and a premium paint package.
“These aircraft are going into service following their 12-year inspections. The helicopters include upgraded navigation systems and equipment updated to the newest standards,” said Pedro Martinez, Metro Aviation’s long-time business partner stationed in Argentina.
Once in service, Martinez noted that the aircraft will “perform law enforcement operations, search-and-rescue, high mountain missions and EMS missions.”
This delivery marks the 10th completion delivered to Argentina.
