What does EVS mean in aviation?

EVS II is the next generation Enhanced Vision System (EVS) allowing for increased pilot visibility and flight safety during flight operations in darkness, smoke, haze, rain, fog, and other low visibility conditions.

What is LSA flight training?

The sport pilot license (certificate) is available specifically for pilots of light-sport aircraft (LSA). Basically, an LSA is a small, simple-to-operate, low-performance airplane, glider, powered parachute, etc. The light-sport airplane is usually smaller and slower than other light airplanes.

What is EVS camera?

EVS AP. Opgal’s EVS AP camera is a field proven, highly sensitive, wide-spectrum infrared camera, which provides aerial camera systems with clear Head-Up Display (HUD) video images of the runway environment, enabling safe taxiing, takeoff, precision approach, and landing.

Do Jets have night vision?

Fighter jets do have a normal cockpit lighting in them. Occasionally crews do use night vision goggles, not for viewing instruments, but visual reference outside the jet, and cockpit lighting can be adjusted for NVS systems.

How does a fighter jet HUD work?

A HUD – Head Up Display – is a means of presenting information to the pilot in the line of their external forward vision which projects key flight instrument data onto a small ‘see-through’ screen positioned just in front of the pilot line of sight looking ahead out of the aircraft.

Are pilots arrogant?

As it has been already mentioned, the dominant personality trait of the majority of pilots is arrogance. A number of studies have proven that aviation attracts individuals who contain a higher level of arrogance. In 2004, a NASA study with quite a diverse sample confirmed that “pilot personality” in fact does exist.

What is CRM and SRM aviation?

SRM is an adaptation of crew resource management (CRM) training to single-pilot operations. The purpose of SRM is to reduce the number of aviation accidents caused by human error by teaching pilots about their own human limitations and how to maximize their performance.

What is EVS system?

An enhanced flight vision system (EFVS, sometimes EVS) is an airborne system which provides an image of the scene and displays it to the pilot, in order to provide an image in which the scene and objects in it can be better detected.
