    Is the FLY Car program still operating?

    So did they take the new Fly Cars (that were operating until the pandemic hit) out of service and replace them all with ALS ambulances? If they took the Fly Cars out of service I would imagine that they could be used as Conditions cars for the Supervising officers?
