FlightSafety International and Metro Aviation celebrate five years of delivering training for single and multi-engine helicopters using Level D qualified simulators in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The EC135 and EC145 Level D qualified simulators installed at the Metro Aviation Training Center are used extensively by Metro to train its pilots, and by FlightSafety instructors to deliver a wide variety of courses that meet the specific operational needs and mission requirements of other operators.

“This has been an exceptional and unusual partnership between Metro and FlightSafety International,” said Mike Stanberry, president and CEO of Metro Aviation. “This is the first time FlightSafety International has partnered with an operator on this type of venture and I have always appreciated the fact that they joined forces with us to bring full motion Level D simulators to our industry that did not previously exist.”
