Night Flight Concepts NVG Maintenance Training for NRC Supports New Capability Development in Canada

Bedford, Texas, (September 13, 2011) — Night Flight Concepts (NFC), a leading provider of night vision solutions, announced today that it completed provision of Night Vision Goggle (NVG) maintenance training to the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). The training will  help to further NVG lifecycle support and capability development in the evolving Canadian NVG market.

As Canada's national aerospace laboratory, NRC Institute for Aerospace Research (NRC-IAR) always assumed a leadership role in supporting the research, innovation and development of advanced capabilities and the corresponding government standards that regulate them in Canada.  The NRC has been actively involved in the research, development and testing of NVGs for several years to support the optimal delivery of this strategic capability into the Canadian market.

“NRC is acutely aware that proper maintenance of night-vision equipment is key to sustaining a safe operation. The NFC maintenance training program was part of an overall effort to expand existing NRC readiness to assist key players in the Canadian market to develop night vision capabilities in Canada.” explains David Luke, VP Maintenance at Night Flight Concepts. “NFC is pleased to help NRC obtain the tools and training to help Canadian operators learn to implement and maintain NVGs to standard to ensure optimal performance and safety.”

A strategic player, NRC has provided critical inputs to an industry-wide consultation process in the last year led by Transport Canada aimed to help frame the formal provisions within the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) that will soon give the Canadian aviation community — both fixed- and rotary-wing — comprehensive oversight on the training and use of night vision goggles (NVGs) and related imaging systems. Proper NVG maintenance is an important part of these directives.
