AviationManuals, a provider of aircraft manual development services and safety management system (SMS) software for business aviation, has unveiled a new Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) package specifically designed to streamline the materials required by business aviation crews and flight departments for EFVS use. The company is providing a comprehensive manual that includes touchdown and rollout procedures, as well as Letter of Authorisation (LOA) application support services, making the development of the procedures manual and application for low visibility landings approvals much easier.
The EFVS technology installed on most midsize and large business jets provides a critical second set of eyes onboard, allowing pilots to fly and land at airports where there is extremely poor visibility. EFVS is an added layer of safety that can be used to help mitigate risk during inclement conditions.
“For a pilot, this means they can land in a greater variety of weather conditions, minimising delays or risks of being rerouted. Our EFVS package can be delivered in as little as a week, and quickly and efficiently provides pilots the manual and supporting equipment documents needed for approval of their LOA application,” says CEO Mark Baier.
The EFVS Compliance Package consists of an operations manual that focuses on landing to 100 ft above the touchdown zone as well as touchdown and rollout; the LOA application process up to submission; preparation of the associated FAA documentation, including a cover letter and all required supporting documents in accordance with FAA guidance; and organisation of the application documentation into a streamlined package, with each supporting document clearly labelled.
Though not required for US domestic travel, an EFVS LOA is often required internationally, especially for flights in the EU.
