FlightSafety International announces that it will offer Part 142 approved Night Vision Goggle training using Level D qualified simulators in Dallas. The courses provide in-depth instruction on the equipment and focus on the efficient and effective use of the goggles through scenario based and mission specific exercises.
The FAA-approved course for the Airbus Helicopters H135 is available now. Courses for the Bell Helicopter 212 and 412 will begin later this fall.
“FlightSafety is the first to receive approval from the United States Federal Aviation Administration for Part 142 delivery of NVG initial, recurrent, recent experience and proficiency courses,” said Steve Gross, Senior Vice President, Sales. “Providing NVG courses and capabilities in our simulators enables us to meet the specific needs of government and military agencies; Emergency Medical Services; Law Enforcement; Search and Rescue; Airborne Surveillance; and Security, Fire and Rescue operations, and others.”
The initial course includes eight hours of ground school and eight hours of training in an advanced Level D qualified simulator that features the company’s industry-leading VITAL 1100 visual system. The recurrent courses include four hours in both the classroom and simulator. The recent experience and proficiency courses provide two hours in each.
The simulators are NVG qualified by the FAA’s National Simulator Program. The qualification was received after thorough evaluation and demonstration of the simulator’s ability to accurately represent Night Vision Goggle operations.
