Max-Viz Announces Major Company Milestone as 1,000th EVS Unit Ships

Max-Viz, Inc. announced today that it had shipped its 1000th Enhanced Vision System (EVS) marking a significant point in the company’s history. The unit, an EVS-1500, was shipped to the Agusta Westland factory in Italy and is expected to be installed on an AW139 some- time in the next few weeks. “We are very proud of our prod- uct and the marketplace accept- ance that the shipment of this 1000th unit represents. Enhanced Vision Systems have become accepted as a key tool for being able to fly safely and avoid situations that could prove dangerous for pilots of all expe- rience levels.” said Elliott Troutman, Max-Viz President & CEO. “The company has over 50 different certified aircraft installations covering more than 200 different aircraft types ranging from large VIP jets and turbine helicopters, to small personal piston-driven aircraft. While I hesitate to say the EVS industry has reached a tipping point, I do think it is safe to say we are close. People are now getting EVS.” The market for EVS is growing and new suppli- ers are beginning to enter the

market. According to Max-Viz estimates, the total commercial aircraft installed base - across all vendors – now exceeds 1,700 systems (including Max- Viz 1,000 units). The Max-Viz EVS-1500 is the only EVS product featuring pilot selectable optical wide angle and telephoto views and is the most popular EVS on the market for turboprop and jet engine powered aircraft. The EVS-1500 and its predecessor, the EVS-1000, are FAA certi- fied and have been installed on a number of rotary and fixed wing aircraft including models from Agusta Westland, Bell, Bombardier, Boeing, Cessna, Dassault, Eurocopter, Gulfstream, Hawker Beechcraft, Pilatus and Sikorsky.

The Max-Viz EVS-600 is the lightest and most affordable EVS and was designed specifi- cally for the operating environ- ment of the general aviation community. This unit is also FAA certified and has been installed on various piston driven aircraft, among them the entire line of Cessna single engine piston aircraft, selected Piper aircraft and the Robinson R-44. The EVS-600 is avail- able directly from the Cirrus factory on Garmin Perspective™ equipped SR 20 and SR22 aircraft. ◆

MedEvac Foundation International has bestowed its 3rd annual Medical Transport Leadership Institute Scholarship to Mr. Christopher Hall, BS, FP-C, NREMT-P of PHI Air Medical Services. The 2-year scholarship is awarded based on active involvement, industry achievement level and commit- ment to critical care transport services, and is made possible through a generous donation from Metro Aviation, Inc. As a novice EMT Chris became interested in the air medical field while working in a medical tent in a line camp on a US Forest Service Complex fire in Idaho. Now having worked for over 15 years in his chosen field, providing education informally and formally, he happily found himself in the position of Coordinator Clinical Education for PHI. By stretching beyond the tradition-


al role of educator into non- traditional role of business development, industry rela- tions, and government affairs, he has been allowed to fulfill the desire to promote emergency and critical care transport. Chris’ future goal is to work toward a public information position to advocate for engag- ing the media to ensure that the public hears of the good work done by the emergency and critical care transport commu- nity, in addition to ensuring the transparency that the public demands and deserves. Earlier this month, Chris completed the first year of MTLI coursework. MTLI par- ticipants develop leadership and management skills specific to medical transport through for- mal education programs emphasizing both management theory and its direct practical application.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to attend MTLI. This was an exceptional and exciting opportunity to network with Air Medical professionals
