FlightSafety First to Provide EFVS to Touchdown and Rollout Training for Gulfstream Aircraft
FlightSafety International is the first to provide Enhanced Flight Vision Systems to Touchdown and Rollout training for the Gulfstream G500 and other Gulfstream aircraft equipped with the Rockwell Collins HUD II and Kollsman (Elbit) EVS-II and EVS-SP.
“We are pleased to introduce this new EFVS to Touchdown and Rollout course,” says Daniel MacLellan, senior vice president, Operations. “Developing this comprehensive program in conjunction with Gulfstream ensures that pilots will gain the knowledge needed to take full advantage of this technology and operating advantages.”
This stand-alone course is offered on Gulfstream aircraft that have achieved EFVS to Touchdown and Rollout certification. It meets the training requirements established by the FAA for operators who use EFVS in lieu of natural vision to descend below the decision height/altitude (DA/DH) or minimum descent altitude (MDA). Certification for Gulfstream EFVS operations for landing and rollout is accompanied by an additional approval which enables appropriately authorized Part 135 operators to dispatch and begin instrument approaches when visibilities are lower than the published approach minimums using the Visual Advantage concept. Part 91 operators could also obtain the required letter of authorization from the FAA after completing the course.
FlightSafety has been the official factory-authorized training organization for Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for more than four decades. Training for the complete line of Gulfstream aircraft is delivered by FlightSafety’s highly experienced and qualified instructors using close to 30 full-flight simulators as well as other advanced training devices and equipment. Training is available at FlightSafety Learning Centers in Columbus, OH; Dallas, TX; Hong Kong; Long Beach, CA; Savannah, GA; Wilmington, DE; and at the London Farnborough Airport in the United Kingdom.
