Max-Viz and Helijet of Vancouver, B.C. Canada announces the cooperative installation of the Max-Viz EVS-1500 on three (3) S-76 helicopters supporting EMS operations under contract with the B.C. Government.

“After thorough evaluation of NVIS technologies, we determined that EVS would provide Helijet EMS helicopters with the most cost effective and safe solution to both day and night operational hazard mitigation” states Ken Glaze, Helijet VP of Business Development.

Pilots are welcoming both the day and night ability to avoid inadvertent IMC (IIMC) conditions as noted by a recent testimonial from Rotary Wing Chief Pilot, Brendan McCormick: “Air Ambulance flight crews are reporting that not only can they see terrain features and man-made structures at night, but they are seeing fog and cloud formations and concentrations of precipitation during the day enabling them to pick safer routes ahead.”

Bob Yerex, Vice President of Sales for Max-Viz states “coming from an EMS cockpit prior to Max-Viz, I can personally attest to the demands of the terrain and dynamic environmental conditions prevalent in the Pacific N.W.”.   “We are excited about the opportunity to work closely with the entire team from Helijet right in our back yard, and look forward to continued feedback and improved safety within their program as a result of the inclusion of our EVS-1500 equipment”, Yerex states.
