"Since flying in 1997, we were one of the first agencies on the west coast to purchase the ITT 4949 goggle. We were one of ASU's first customers. They came out and trained us. We have saved hundreds of lives in night-time search and rescue operations. One of the companies that we deal with that we've never had a negative experience, we use them for our 180-day goggle inspections, we send them in and have them back within a week, it's an unbelievable turnaround time. We've never had any maintenance, training issue what-so-ever. Their customer support is awesome. When I call, I always get a hold of someone. I wish all of the companies we dealt with in our aviation industry, were as responsible and responsive as they are."
