One Sky Aviation and Forward Vision recently received an STC to install Forward Vision’s EVS-100 (powered by Max-Viz) Enhanced Vision System as an “All Models List” for the entire Cessna single engine piston product line, including the 100 series, 206, and 207 models. Patrick Farrell, president of Forward Vision, notes the STC includes all 158 models of Cessna 100 and 200 series models except the 208 and P210 models, the latter being handled under separate STC initiatives to be completed soon.
The STC was designed and developed by Cary Foster and Sharmaine Vestal, co-owners of One Sky Aviation, an aviation maintenance facility based in Anchorage, Alaska.
The EVS-100 is a single LRU unit that weighs less than 1.5 pounds and mounts like any external antenna. An introductory price of $17,995 is being offered for a limited time through One Sky Aviation, which includes the EVS-100, STC installation kit, and certified monitor display.
EVS systems – commonly known as infrared or thermal imaging cameras – turn night into day for the pilot and help to penetrate haze, fog, smoke and precipitation eight to 10 times further than the human eye.
