N5786X (cn 1492) A photo of a photo taken by my dad when he was a firefighter for the Pepper Pike Fire Department. Circa 1985. Cleveland Metro Life Flight was founded in 1982 as the first air medical program in the area. From 1958 until 1989, the hospital was known as Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital. In '89 it became The MetroHealth System that it's known as today. According to the hospital, its Life Flight program is its most recognizable symbol of its leadership in trauma. For years the hospital operated Sikorsky S-76s. As of 2009, the program operates 3 Eurocopter EC145s.
