Hawker Beechcraft Corp. (HBA) is adding options for enhanced vision systems on its Bonanza and Baron aircraft, the company announced. The airframe manufacturer said the EVS-100 and EVS-600 enhanced vision systems from Forward Vision, of Russell, Pa., are line replaceable units that weigh less than 1.5 pounds and mount like any external antenna. The EVS -100 and -600 will first be offered by STC on the Bonanza, with the STC for the Baron to follow soon after. In addition to making EVS technology an option on factory-new airplanes, Hawker Beechcraft service centers will be providing Forward Vision STC-approved systems to the sizeable Bonanza and Baron fleets around the world. “Continuing to offer leading edge product improvements and safety features to our piston aircraft remains a priority for Hawker Beechcraft,” said Shawn Vick, HBC executive vice president. “This technology enhances the safety of flight and situational awareness by providing pilots an infrared camera-generated image that literally turns darkness into daylight.”
