Orange County California Fire Authority selects Night Flight Concepts NVIO™ NVG Computer-Based Training for its pilots and crew

Irvine, California (May 15, 2012) – Leading night vision imaging system (NVIS) solution provider Night Flight Concepts  is pleased to announce the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) has contracted to use NVIO™ Night Vision Goggle (NVG) Computer-Based Training (CBT) for Initial and Recurrent training of flight crew to ensure readiness in night operations. 

 “The use of night vision goggles has really improved safety at night.” explains OCFA’s Captain Dave Lopez. “As a result, keeping NVG equipment and personnel operation-ready is a real priority.  “After reviewing the many products available for NVG training, it is our intention to run all of our flight crew members though the NVIO NVG course,” stated Lopez. “NVIO’s ease-of- access, as well as its powerful state of the art interactive courseware were the main reasons for selecting Night Flight Concepts as our NVG solution provider. “

Responsible for fire protection and emergency medical services to unincorporated areas of Orange County, California and cities in the region, the OCFA relies on night vision goggles (NVGs) to perform critical operations at night. NVGs provide the enhanced situational awareness to enable OCFA  to perform night water drops and night rescues with greater precision and less risk to those in the air and on the ground.
