Metro Aviation has delivered a newly completed H135 helicopter to be used by Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center's DHART programme and the University of Vermont Medical (UVM) Center’s Health Network Critical Care Transport Team, the company announced on 18 December.

Fitted out with Metro Aviation’s traditional medical interior, the H135 will be operated as part of an improved regional transport system to provide faster critical care.

The helicopter has been customised with a distinct paint job featuring branding for each programme. Its design replicates DHART’s customary design, while the colour scheme demonstrates the collaboration with UVM.

Kyle Madigan, director of DHART, said: ‘Through our collaboration between Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and the UVM Center, we have improved the access to high quality, critical care transport in the Northeast region.’

Staffed with a UVM medical team with flight requests coordinated through the DHART programme, the Burlington-based partnership began service in August 2018. The aircraft is operated by Metro Aviation.
