By Raven Brown

Air Evac 38 updated their new aircraft at the end of January. Wednesday evening, the public is invited to check out the new helicopter.

The aircraft is updated with autopilot, allows the team to get to their destinations faster, has a larger carrying capacity and can now carry heavier patients and a passenger to ride with patients.

Flight times are faster. Meek told KTVO that before it took around 50 minutes to get to Columbia and with the new aircraft it can take about 35 minutes.
