VisionSafe’s Emergency Vision Assurance System (EVAS) is now STC’d for the Embraer Praetor 500 and 600. EVAS provides a clear space of air through which a pilot can see flight instruments and out the front windshield for landing the airplane in the event of cockpit smoke.

“This feature will enhance safety on Embraer’s Praetor business jets,” said Marsha Woelber, head of worldwide executive jets customer support and aftermarket sales at Embraer Service & Support. “This reflects the continuous improvement Embraer brings to its successful business jet portfolio.”

In addition to the Praetor, EVAS can also be installed under an STC for the Embraer Legacy 450, 500, 600, and 650, as well as the Lineage 1000.  EVAS also is available as loose equipment for the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300. EVAS can be retrofit installed on these Embraer business jets at any factory-owned service center.

“Embraer’s constant commitment to safety is reaffirmed in announcing this partnership with VisionSafe. Having EVAS available as an STC on Embraer’s flagship Praetor aircraft is a milestone for business aviation,” said Chris Skurat, director of sales for business aviation at VisionSafe. “EVAS is now available on all Embraer business aircraft, giving clients the option of adding EVAS to their aircraft as an aftermarket upgrade.”
