In celebration of achieving some major milestones in 2013, Aviation Specialties Unlimited, (ASU) will host a series of events at the Airborne Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) annual convention in Orlando from July 17-20 at booth 224.
“This year ASU surpassed some major milestones,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Hannah Gordon. “We have many customers in the law enforcement industry who helped us achieve 700 cockpit modifications and we are proud to support those that have supported us. We want to take the opportunity at ALEA to celebrate this achievement and other achievements with them.”
ASU invites ALEA attendees to join them at booth 224 from 1-4 pm., on Thursday and Friday for a toast and some complimentary libations.
To recognize aviation operators and units who use night vision goggles (NVG) to complete missions safely, ASU will also co-host the Night Vision Awards from 4:30-6:30 p.m., July 18th at the Peabody Hotel in Ballroom T.
A returning favorite, Quality Assurance Manager Kip McDermott will teach the NVIS Aircraft Conformity Requirements and Procedures scheduled for Friday, July 19 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. As the largest commercial NVIS lighting modifier, ASU has developed this course to educate operators and maintainers on the proper maintenance and conformance of the NVIS Lighting Modification. The course includes modification methodology, common types of modifications, FAA procedures and other critical compliance steps in the field.
“We hope everyone will come out and join us at one of our many events at ALEA, and we look forward to seeing everyone” said Gordon.
