Nivisys Industries, LLC, a leader in Night Vision and Thermal technologies, announced today that they have received FAA Certification authorizing the operation of their Repair Station for Night Vision Aviator Goggles.
According to Lee A. Stephens, Nivisysâ€™ FAA Accountable Manager, â€œNivisys now holds the unique distinction of being the only Night Vision Goggle Manufacturer (TSO-C164) to also establish and operate a dedicated FAA Certificated Repair Station.â€
Operating under Repair Station Certificate number 7NSR594B, the Station is certified with a Limited Accessory Rating assigned for NVG Repairs and Maintenance. This certification allows Nivisys to issue FAA 8130-3 â€œReturn to Serviceâ€ Certificates documenting Continued Airworthiness of the NVG after necessary 180 day inspection, maintenance and repair activities.
Byron Harding, Nivisys Founder and CEO commented: â€œThis has been a challenging year not only for Nivisys but for the Night Vision Industry as a whole. Even with the obstacles, we felt we had to dedicate the resources to establish the Repair Station in support of the NVG Operators. We are now fully engaged to support the Aviation Community in NVG sales, maintenance and repair.â€
