Aero Dynamix, Inc, the industry leader in Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS), is pleased to announce that they have been granted the first ever European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) STC (10028376) approval based on validation of a FAA STC (SR09480RC) for the installation of a Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) in Europe. Aero Dynamix, working in association with MD Helicopters, completed the installation of a NVIS aircraft lighting system in a MD902 Helicopter which was then delivered to Casa Air of Denmark where EASA certification began.
After applying for EASA validation, Aero Dynamix engineering and certification professionals worked diligently with the FAA and EASA personnel to ensure that all of the stringent certification requirements as defined by EASA were met. Aero Dynamix Certification Engineer, Jessie K. Kearby, traveled to Denmark with MD Helicopter, Casa Air and EASA personnel to conduct certification activities. Aircraft conformity inspections and flight tests were conducted to ensure that all certification standards were upheld and the NVIS system was of the highest possible level of quality. EASA STC approval was granted to Aero Dynamix in December of 2009.
