Adverse visual conditions contribute to roughly 20% of ALAs. Visibility/Ceiling are the second largest cause in weather-related incidents, with close to 50% of CFIT or RS accidents citing loss of situational awareness as a contributing factor. Unstabilized approaches have been identified as a critical safety factor in many Runway Excursion accidents, and low visibility affects RVR, hindering approach and landing under harsh weather in the absence of an ILS.
This is where Opgal’s® EVS AP 640 comes in, making sure you’re cleared for landing. With our Enhanced Flight Vision System, pilots can see clearly through fog, smoke, sand, and all forms of precipitation, receiving keen-sighted visuals of over 1200 m through the haze. Come hell or high water, EVS AP 640 will see you through a safe landing.
Why EVS AP?
The EVS AP 640’s wide-spectrum IR image is projected on any integrated HUD, or HDD, offering intuitive out-of-the-window flying, directly minimizing the dependency on airport instruments, and reducing flight and landing minima. Day or night, EVS AP 640 betters flight safety and situational awareness – both in the air and on active taxiways and runways.
