The marketers of the emergency vision assurance system (EVAS) have received an STC for installation of the equipment in Boeing 737-300 cockpits, with the first units being delivered for the narrowbody twinjet to Magic Carpet Aviation in Orlando, Fla. EVAS, marketed by EVASWorldwide of Ramsey, N.J., is designed to provide pilots with an unobstructed view of vital instruments and controls in the event of continuous smoke in the cockpit. Some 1,400 EVAS units are currently installed in corporate aircraft.
Next year, the company might start developing a smaller, two-piece version of EVAS.
