Max-Viz announced today the Canadian approval of US FAA STC#SR02322AKfor the installation of the EVS-1500 Enhanced Vision System on S-76 A thru C++ helicopters.
The Approval was obtained by STC holder and Max-Viz team partner One Sky Aviation. â€œThe S-76 approval process went very smoothly through Transport Canadaâ€, stated Cary Foster, owner of One Sky Aviation based in Anchorage, Alaska.
â€œWe were extremely pleased with our first interaction with Transport Canada and will shortly be submitting the B-222 / 230 / 430, EC-130 / AS-350 / EC-135, and Robinson R-44 STCâ€™s for similar approvalâ€, Foster said. â€œThis first Canadian certification for the industry benchmark EVS-1500 system will quickly be brought into service and presents a significant enhancement to both safety and operational decision making for flight crewsâ€ stated Bob Yerex, Vice President for Sales at Max-Viz.
Cary Foster of One Sky Aviation http://www.oneskyaviation.com added â€œAs a long standing EVS operator on One Skyâ€™s aircraft, I can personally attest to the ability to avoid IMC conditions during nighttime VFR flight operations, and the CFIT avoidance capability of Max-Viz infrared EVS technology is second to none within the industry.â€The performance at night will make you wonder how you ever operated without the EVS. It sincerely turns night into day and reduces stress levels like no other technologyâ€.
