When EVAS Worldwide demonstrated its smoke-displacement system to potential customers more than three years ago, there were perhaps 150 units in service. Today sales have reached the 2,000 mark, according to the Ramsey, N.J. company. The patented emergency vision assurance system (EVAS) enables pilots to see the flight path and vital instruments, and to read approach plates and emergency procedures, even when the cockpit is filled with smoke. Perhaps the most ringing endorsement has come from the FAA itself, which has begun installing 52 EVAS units on a wide variety of aircraft that it uses to flight-check navaids and for other missions.
