Helijet and Max-Viz Outfit Canadian Sikorsky S-76s with EVS
Portland, Ore.-based Max-Viz has teamed with Helijet of Vancouver, Canada to equip three Sikorsky S-76s with the Max-Viz EVS1500 system. The helicopters will perform EMS missions for the British Columbia government under a contract with Helijet. Pilots flying the S-76s with the enhanced vision system have already reported back that they are able to see “fog and cloud formations and concentrations of precipitation during the day enabling them to pick safer routes ahead,” according to Max-Viz.
