Pro Star Aviation is in the final stages of STC certification with the Kollsman GAViS installation on a Sikorsky S-76 helicopter.
GAViS – or General Aviation Vision System – is an alternative for Night Vision Goggle conversions. Final FAA certification is expected soon.
Pro Star Aviation has obtained nearly 50 STCs on wide variety of aircraft for systems like TCAS, EGPWS, LCD EFIS, satellite TV, SATCOM, and RVSM.
The Kollsman GAViS is a low-profile camera enclosure that is mounted on the upper nose cowl of a Sikorsky S-76. In periods of darkness and/or limited visibility, this technology provides situation awareness on a heads down display without pilots having to convert cockpit lighting or wear headgear. A Flight Display Systems video monitor is mounted on either side of the instrument panel, offering a forward view for approach, departure and taxi operations.
