Rotorcraft Report: Forward Vision Gains R44 STC
Under a partnership with One Sky Aviation, Russell, Pa.-based Forward Vision Systems has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) to equip the Robinson R44 with the EVS100/600. The enhanced vision system, which Max-Viz developed with Forward Vision, is for the GA market. Forward Vision CEO Patrick Farrell notes that Flight Display Systems also participated in the EVS100/600, supplying a display—the five-inch Flipper LCD—that is used when space on the MFD is not an option.
