Life Flight Network recently took delivery of an upgraded Airbus EC135P2+ from Paradigm Aerospace Corporation (PAC) International, a subsidiary of Metro Aviation. PAC removed the aircraft's corporate VIP interior and factory avionics and installed a complete Metro Aviation medical interior and Garmin GTN 650/750 single pilot IFR avionics suite. The interior and exterior of the aircraft were also completely repainted to match the Life Flight Network fleet.
Life Flight Network is a not-for-profit patient transport service providing helicopter, fixed-wing and ground ambulance transport throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.
“We greatly appreciate the hard work that went into completing this project and are highly satisfied with the results,” says senior director of aviation maintenance Chad McCracken. “We look forward to placing this aircraft into service, allowing our highly skilled clinicians and pilots to do what they do best; save lives.”
“We have enjoyed working with the staff at Life Flight Network. They are a new customer to us, and we look forward to working with them on future projects,” adds PAC director of maintenance Ed Wahl.
