Dassault Falcon selected VisionSafe’s emergency vision assurance system as optional equipment for Falcon jet operators. Marketed and distributed by EVASWorldwide, more than 1,200 of the systems, which displace smoke in cockpits so that pilots can see instruments and land safely, have been delivered (see related story on page 18). According to EVASWorldwide, smoke-type emergencies are the number-four cause of loss of life and aircraft and, the company added, “smoke in the cockpit is also the number-one cause of diversions for ETOPS flights.”
