Metro delivers two EC135 aircraft to Mercy Life Line

Shreveport, Louisiana – Metro Aviation recently delivered the last two of five EC135’s to Mercy Life Line in Springfield, Missouri.  Mercy’s transition to all EC135P2+ Single Pilot IFR (SPIFR) aircraft began in 2012 with the delivery of three aircraft.  With the addition of the final EC135’s, Mercy opened new bases in Joplin, MO and Rogers, AR. 

The five-base operation has provided safe, rapid air transport since 1984 and has partnered with Metro Aviation since 2001.  “We share a common vision and mission, and there is never a time when I can’t pick up the phone and talk to the number one guy,” said Mercy Director DJ Satterfield.  “It is nice knowing we work with a company that wants us to succeed just as much as we do and we could not be happier with our completions.”

LAHAD DATU: A rescued rare Sumatran rhino was successfully translocated late afternoon on Friday from a very remote area in Danum Valley.

She will join two other rhinos – Tam (male) and Puntung (female) at the Borneo Rhino Sanctuary (BRS) facilities in Tabin Wildlife Reserve.

Named Iman, after a small river near where she was caught, her rescue was a result of a year of intense efforts to make every last rhino in Malaysia count towards efforts to prevent the extinction of one of the world’s most critically endangered species.
