VisionSafe has entered into an agreement with Banyan Air Service naming the MRO an emergency vision assurance system (EVAS) sales and service center for the Southeast U.S. EVAS is an FAA tested and certified system available for all turboprop and jet aircraft that displaces smoke, enabling pilots to see the flight path and instruments during an emergency.

VisionSafe’s emergency vision assurance system can help pilots see in a smoke-filled cockpit. When inflated, it forms a clear, smoke-free channel to the windscreen.

On average about three crews every day will face one of pilots’ greatest fears: smoke in the cockpit. Quite often, smoke is easily controlled, by switching off electrical consumers and pulling circuit breakers, for example. But uncontrolled smoke in a cockpit can quickly obscure vital flight instruments, effectively incapacitating the flight crew at a most critical time.
