Safe Flight Instrument Corporation of White Plains, NY received the Safety Award from the Eastern Region Helicopter Council (ERHC) for its Powerline Detection System for helicopters. The award is in recognition of Safe Flight’s innovative life-saving products and for its 70-year commitment to making flying safer.

“ERHC salutes Safe Flight for developing innovative safety products, such as the Powerline Detection System (PDS), which have greatly contributed to the advancement of aviation safety.”- Michael Philbin, Chairman ERHC.

Safe Flight’s PDS is European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified and operates worldwide to detect 50Hz/60Hz powerline frequency emissions.  The PDS is an extremely lightweight (less than 2.0 lbs. installed) passive system that alerts the pilot when approaching an energized powerline.  The system provides both a visual and aural warning to the crew.  As the aircraft approaches the hazard, the aural tone intensifies, cautioning the pilot.
