GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- On Saturday, dozens of people attended the official grand opening of the North Flight Aero Med Hangar at Cherry Capital Airport.

The open house offered tours of the brand new hangar and its emergency aircraft.

North Flight Aero Med is a critical care emergency service that serves both Munson Healthcare and Spectrum Health.

People were able to get an inside look at the aircraft, speak to pilots and the paramedics.

Guests were also greeted by Piper the Cherry Capital Airport K-9.

“Prior to the completion of this hangar, we were operating out of multiple spaces here at the airport,” said Tiffany Obetts, program director with North flight Aero Med. “So having the whole team together quickens our response time which is really what is best for patient care.”
