Safety & Night Vision

Night Vision Technology

Aspirus MedEvac air employs the newest generation of Night Vision technology, providing a substantial edge on the elements and ensuring timeliness and the safe delivery of patients. This advanced technology allows pilots to spot power lines, trees and other hazards in the dark.  

A FAA study found that when properly used, NVGs can increase safety, enhance situational awareness, and reduce pilot workload and stress that are typically associated with night operations. Benefits of NVGs include: more efficient navigation, a greater ability to identify hazards, and a heightened ability to locate the horizon in unfamiliar terrain.

Terrain Avoidance Technology

The MedEvac helicopters utilize a multi-hazard avoidance system that alerts against wires, terrain and obstacles.
