There’s nothing worse than fire in the cockpit, but smoke in the cockpit comes close. One company has a clever, potentially life-saving solution, with training: VisionSafe’s Emergency Vision Assurance System (EVAS).
The system consists of several components: an envelope that keeps the air clear around the pilot’s flight instruments; a blower that removes the air from the envelope; and a filter that keeps the air in the envelope clear. The system is available on hundreds of airplanes, has been certificated for 15 years, and has enjoyed widespread adoption, but it does require training for its use.
Enter King Schools, which announced today they would provide training for the system. The course is available from King Schools, and can be downloaded for offline use. The training package comes with two software keys as part of the package.
