Aviation Specialties Unlimited, (ASU) announced today that they have surpassed a major industry milestone by exceeding 500 Night Vision Goggle Cockpit Modifications.
“Reaching 500 modifications is a major accomplishment,” said ASU president and Founder Mike Atwood. “At ASU we have a team of dedicated employees that understands just how important safety and night vision are. Every time we work on an aircraft and modify the cockpit for night vision flights we know we are making the pilots and communities in which they fly in safer.”
ASU’s first modification was for Collier County Emergency Medical Services and St. Vincent Healthcare on two EC 135s. With the completion of the modification for Air Methods’ EC130 helicopter, ASU reached 500. The STC for the EC130 was the first of its kind of modification. No other company in the industry has reached that many modifications.
“I want to thank our customers for trusting and selecting us for their modifications. Now we are looking forward to the next 15 years of performing quality modifications and the next 500 aircraft,” said Atwood.
