Kollsman GAViS Certified On Sikorsky S-76

The Kollsman General Aviation Vision System (GAViS) has been certified on the Sikorsky S-76A, B and C model helicopters, parent company Elbit Systems of America announced.

GAViS is a lightweight infrared sensor that provides a video image of the aircraft’s forward environment at night and in low visibility conditions. It leverages key technology developed for the Kollsman EVS II system used on Gulfstream aircraft.

Elbit said Pro Star Aviation, Londonderry, N.H., has received FAA supplemental type certificate (STC) approval to install the system at the customer’s location during annual inspections or at Pro Star facilities.
