FlightSafety International will expand its simulator-based Night Vision Goggle training program through a collaborative agreement with Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU).
Night Vision Goggle training is available at FlightSafety’s Learning Center in Tucson, Ariz., using the new FAA Level 7 qualified AS350 Flight Training Device. Other FlightSafety locations will offer NVG training in full flight Level D qualified simulators in the future.
The NVG training courses will 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 training can be customized to meet the specific needs of government and military agencies as well as other helicopter operators including Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement Agencies, Search and Rescue, Airborne Surveillance, Security and Fire and Rescue.
Aviation Specialties Unlimited was established in 1995 to meet the growing demand for night vision systems within public and civil aviation operations. ASU assisted FlightSafety in the qualification and FAA approval for its AS350 Flight Training device in Tucson. ASU has modified over 600 aircraft through 18-Supplemental Type Certificates covering 53 make and model aircraft. For more information: 208-426-8117 or ASU-NVG.com, FlightSafety.com
