Aviation Specialties Unlimited Inc. (ASU) of Idaho, U.S., and U.K.-based operator and support organization Specialist Aviation Services Ltd (SAS) announced that the company has obtained CAA approval for the use of White Phosphor night vision goggles (NVGs) on the MD 902 Explorer.
The MD902 is used by numerous law enforcement and air ambulance operations in the U.K.
Earlier this month at Helitech International in London, ASU formalized an agreement with SAS to serve U.K.-based customers. ASU now has 36 STCs covering 65 makes and models of aircraft (rotary and fixed wing) around the world including STCs from the Federal Aviation Administration, EASA, Transport Canada, and Brazil.
“Our team at ASU has worked hard throughout the years to continually add STCs in order to give operators of various aircraft the options they need to operate at night,” said ASU Executive Director of Business Development Kip McDermott. “We anticipate this to be the first of many STCs that are obtained globally for the new white phosphor goggles.”
