The FAA has approved the enhanced vision system (EVS) recently installed in a Gulfstream V flight simulator at FlightSafety’s Savannah, Ga. training center. The first pilots have completed EVS training in the level-D simulator and at press time were preparing to fly the real thing. Through software integration of the HUD and the simulator EVS with the visual system, the EVS provides the same view in the training center as it does in the airplane. FlightSafety’s visual systems division in St. Louis produced the high-definition view in the GV simulator, which is able to fool the pilot’s eye with illusory depth and texture. EVS in the GV, a system produced for Gulfstream by Kollsman, is the only such device approved for deployment in a civil airplane model.
