Helicopter flight training wearing Night Vision Goggles (NVG) is as exciting and interesting as any other new skill or technique that can be learned in a helicopter. It’s right up there with learning touchdown autorotations! The one and only buzzkill is that, as the name of the device suggests, you must be using them at night. It’s all fun and games --- until your flight-training block is from 0200 – 0400.

Only one thing can predictably calm the temper of an entire raging forest fire in a matter of hours: night. When the temperature drops, the wind dies down and humidity levels rise, the growth rate of even the most determined inferno is significantly reduced. What better time to try and exercise control over the blaze?

WASHINGTON (KABC) -- The United States Forest Service announced Thursday it would contract a full-time night-flying firefighting helicopter beginning next year. The helicopter will be used for dropping water and flame-retardant on fires. The Forest Service plans to use the helicopter in the future to also include emergency medical transport and aerial management of controlled burns and wildfires in progress.

The new contracting helicopter will be used exclusively by the Forest Service for firefighting operations. The Forest Service currently uses other helicopters on an as-needed basis under established agreements with several Southern California organizations, according to the agency.
