FlightSafety International to offer Part 142 approved Night Vision Goggle training using Level D qualified simulators in Dallas


FlightSafety, July 07, 2016 - NEW YORK – FlightSafety International announces that it will offer Part 142 approved Night Vision Goggle training using Level D qualified simulators in Dallas.

The courses provide in-depth instruction on the equipment and focus on the efficient and effective use of the goggles through scenario based and mission specific exercises.

The FAA-approved course for the Airbus Helicopters H135 is available now. Courses for the Bell Helicopter 212 and 412 will begin later this fall.

“FlightSafety is the first to receive approval from the United States Federal Aviation Administration for Part 142 delivery of NVG initial, recurrent, recent experience and proficiency courses,” said Steve Gross, Senior Vice President, Sales. “Providing NVG courses and capabilities in our simulators enables us to meet the specific needs of government and military agencies; Emergency Medical Services; Law Enforcement; Search and Rescue; Airborne Surveillance; and Security, Fire and Rescue operations, and others.”

The initial course includes eight hours of ground school and eight hours of training in an advanced Level D qualified simulator that features the company’s industry-leading VITAL 1100 visual system. The recurrent courses include four hours in both the classroom and simulator. The recent experience and proficiency courses provide two hours in each.

The simulators are NVG qualified by the FAA’s National Simulator Program. The qualification was received after thorough evaluation and demonstration of the simulator’s ability to accurately represent Night Vision Goggle operations.

FlightSafety provides a wide variety of courses for pilots, maintenance technicians, and other aviation professionals who operate and support helicopters manufactured by Airbus Helicopters, AgustaWestland Leonardo Helicopters, Bell Helicopter, and Sikorsky. The company also offers mission specific training programs for other types of helicopters.

FlightSafety International is the world’s premier professional aviation training company and supplier of flight simulators, visual systems and displays to commercial, government and military organizations. The company provides more than 1.3 million hours of training each year to pilots, technicians and other aviation professionals from 167 countries and independent territories.

FlightSafety operates the world’s largest fleet of advanced full-flight simulators at Learning Centers and training locations in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
