ASU Expands Reach and Capabilities to Safeguard More Who Serve, Protect, Rescue, and Defend


Expanded reach and capabilities marked by record-breaking installations, new product developments, and unique patents made 2016 a banner year for Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) based in Boise, Idaho.The company’s expansion of geography and offering has safeguarded even more of the women and men that serve, protect, rescue, and defend communities both domesitcally and internationally.


In 2016, ASU acquired five new FAA supplemental type certificates, (STCs) and completed night vision imaging system (NVIS) modifications for a variety of airframes to include Type IIII, Type II, and even Type I helicopters and high-altitude, pressurized jets. These newly night-vision-compatible aircraft are serving roles in national defense, wildland conservation, and commerce. ASU reached a significant milestone this year by completing its 1,000th Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified aircraft modification.


“ASU already has the most extensive list of STC’s in the world for night vision systems,” said Kip McDermott, vice president of engineering (II) for ASU. “In 2016 we received five new STC’s, including the Boeing CH-47 Chinook, Boeing Vertol KV-107 and 107II, and De Havilland DHC-8. Around the world our clients are not only utilizing new aircraft, but they are also retrofitting older aircraft for new missions. By gaining new STC’s, we can help them expand their night operations capabilities.”


ASU is empowering more night vision certified pilots with in-person NVG initial and recurrent training, as well as offering a co-branded NVG recurrent computer-based training with Flight Safety International. Some of the new and renewed training contracts include the FAA, the Seminole Tribe, and operator Ornge.


The men and women who serve, protect, rescue, and defend now have access to new ASU representatives across the globe including
