Setting the Standard for NVG
During the past 16 years, Aero Dynamix has become the leader in the night vision modification industry. Focusing on safety, quality, and customer satisfaction, Aero Dynamix is truly setting the standard for NVG.
Aero Dynamix also offers its customers around the world the ease of having their instruments modified internally without having the OEM warranty voided. With agreements from major OEMs such as Honeywell, Garmin, Rockwell Collins and many others, Aero Dynamix has the authority to open an avionics unit, modify the internal lighting to be compatible with goggles, and not void the manufacturer’s warranty.
Aero Dynamix offers an engineering and manufacturing department that can design and build Edge Lit Panels and NVIS Overlay Panels for various fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft. This cuts down on production time and risk for completing a project since all work is performed internally and there are no third-party vendors to coordinate with. With state-of-the-art machinery, Aero Dynamix ensures the highest levels of quality are always met.
Each civil aircraft that is modified by Aero Dynamix is fully certified and STC’d by the FAA, meeting all of the regulatory guidance standards. Aero Dynamix is privileged to say the company has earned 24 multi-ship supplemental type certificates on 36 different aircraft, as well as, two EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) validations, with a third pending, for NVG cockpits.
Aero Dynamix also has NVG sales and certification/repair capabilities, and is a stocking distributor of L-3 goggles. With a 48-hour turnaround time on re-certification of goggles, aviators and operators are able to stay in the air so that they can continue to provide their much-needed mission support.
Because of the anticipated increase in demand for NVG lighting systems in 2010, the company is currently in the process of rebuilding a much larger, state-of-the-art facility (23,200 square feet) to compliment growing needs in the industry. Aero Dynamix plans on moving in to the new facility early 2011.
Dennis Trout, General Manager of Aero Dynamix, states: “As the industry leader, we will continue to grow and support our customers in a way that no other company can.” Trout stresses that crew safety, mission accomplishment and ensuring the total life-cycle support to the customer is critical to the success of Aero Dynamix. ■
