Helijet has selected Max-Viz EVS-1500 infrared enhanced vision systems for three Sikorsky S-76s used in EMS operations. “Air Ambulance flight crews are reporting that not only can they see terrain features and man-made structures at night, but they are seeing fog and cloud formations and concentrations of precipitation during the day enabling them to pick safer routes ahead,” said Helijet chief pilot Brendan McCormick. According to Max-Viz (Booth No. 2909), “the systems use infrared sensors, signal processing and a cockpit display to show terrain, runways, taxiways, aircraft and other obstacles through poor visibility conditions including light fog, haze, smoke, brown/whiteout, light precipitation and darkness.”
