ASU Offers NVG Firefighting Training
Boise, Idaho-based Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) has developed a training course for NVG firefighting in response to outbreak of wildfires in the U.S. and abroad. The training will cover NVG-specific flight skills for filling the belly tank and methods to approach, attack and depart the fire line. The course also includes Part 61 NVG ground and flight qualification training and, if needed, special operations (belly tank firefighting) training, which provides a Part 133 endorsement.
