Introduction

Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) operation has been undertaken for a number of years primarily limited to military and police operation. Since the inclusion of Helicopter Emergency Medical Service into JAR-OPS and future EASA OPS regulations, it has been recognised that the safe operation of night time missions would be enhanced using NVIS equipment. This improvement for civil night VFR operation, with the aim of reducing accidents and improving awareness, requires modification to make an aircraft NVIS-compliant.

However, Certification of NVIS modifications and recent assessments of NVIS modified aircraft has shown a lack of awareness regarding installation, training, configuration management and continued airworthiness issues for NVIS modified aircraft. To improve awareness, regulators, design organisations, operators as well as maintenance and training organisations require specific knowledge in existing standards for NVIS equipment.

Course Content

This training course is a familiarisation training based on existing and proposed requirements issued by: EASA and FAA in various regulations. The following subjects will be addressed:

  • Regulatory Background / Introduction to NVIS requirements. FAA / EASA system
  • NVG Certification issues and handling in flight operation/maintenance
  • NVG working principle, types and models
  • NVIS lighting constraints
  • NVIS testing – Ground / Flight
  • Operator Training requirements
  • Continued Airworthiness of NVIS modified aircraft / configuration control
  • Part 145 maintenance organisations – required training
