Peruvian Navy Completes NVG Training, Modifications, Goggle Purchases with Aviation Specialties Unlimited

(Boise, ID. - February 6, 2012)  Aviation Specialties Unlimited, (ASU) announced that the Peruvian Navy completed their first round of training with ASU on Night Vision Goggle operations.  The training was initiated at their headquarters in Lima, Peru and completed at a base in southern Peru.
NVG flight training consisted of NVG Operations and Handling, Aeromedical Factors, Terrain Interpretation, Normal and Emergency Procedures and Over Water Operations. The NVG Flight Training course followed the acquisition of Night Vision Goggles and the completion of NVG cockpit modifications to aircraft in the Peruvian Navy's fleet.  In addition to the initial training, ASU also completed two Bell 206 NVIS modifications and sold them NVIS goggles.
"The ocean can be a unique and challenging environment and this is an example of a military caring about the safety of their people," said ASU's Chief Pilot Justin Watlington.  "I was honored to work and train with the dedicated members of the Peruvian Navy."  ASU
The implementation of NVG's will increase operational capabilities of their force and ASU will work with them as they further their capabilities in the second round of training.
"The Peruvian Navy is a prime example of ASU's commitment to customize
training and services to meet client needs.   We customized our training to
uniquely address the environment in which their pilots operate in on a daily basis.  Because we have clients all over the world, we have trained teams that are prepared to help with training, modification, maintenance and sales of night vision equipment," said Watlington.
