Aviation Specialties Unlimited, (ASU) have received Transport Canada approval for cockpit modifications on the MD900. ASU completed a cockpit modification for Yukon Territory based Horizon Helicopters. The MD900 will be used for Emergency Medical Services and Search and Rescue missions.

"We chose ASU because they came highly recommended from a pilot that knew their work and because of their experience working with Transport Canada requirements," said Operations Manager for Horizon Helicopters Cole Hodinski. "Night vision goggles and equipment are still new in Canada and ASU has completed a number of projects in our country. We wanted to work with someone that already had experience."

Aviation Specialties Unlimited, (ASU) announced that they have now sold more than 4,500 night vision aviation systems worldwide. This gives ASU more aviation systems sales to civilian operators than any supplier in the world.

"I can remember when the thought of night vision systems in the civil market was just a luxurious dream," said ASU's founder Mike Atwood. "Our goal at ASU was to make that dream a reality and make NVGs readily available to operators around the world. The milestone in sales is a major accomplishment for us, but the numerous lives that have been saved from averted crashes, successful EMS, SAR and Law Enforcement missions is unquantifiable. I am glad that ASU had the opportunity to help make a safer environment for pilots all over the world."
