VIH Aerospace to perform critical night vision installs
VIH Aerospace (VIHA), a global provider of helicopter maintenance, manufacturing, repair and overhaul (MMRO) services, has announced it has been selected to develop and install three Supplemental Type Certified Night Vision system installations for Helijet International Incorporated.
Teaming with Rebtech Technologies (Rebtech) and Night Flight Concepts, VIHA will take the lead in working with Helijet to determine requirements, and then design and install the night vision systems for Helijet’s three Sikorsky S-76c+ helicopters that are dedicated to support the B.C. Ambulance Service (BCAS) operated by British Columbia Emergency Health Services (BCEHS).
Danny Sitnam, president and CEO at Helijet, noted: “We selected VIH Aerospace and Rebtech because of their renowned expertise in the field. The B.C. Ambulance Service requires us to have our air ambulances mission-ready on a 24/7 basis and operate under all kinds of emergency conditions across B.C.’s vast terrain, including night flights to remote locations. VIH Aerospace and Rebtech have an impressive track record installing this kind of night vision technology on a wide variety of Sikorsky and other helicopter types used in medical, defense and other sectors. We know they’re the best choice for this project.”
"VIH Aerospace and Rebtech have partnered on a range night vision solutions for customers, and the opportunity to work with an air ambulance leader like Helijet, right here in B.C., is a perfect opportunity to showcase our expertise a little closer to home," says Arne Arneson, general manager for VIH Aerospace. "As in all our projects, our goal is to develop and deliver optimal night vision systems for Helijet’s three S-76C+ helicopters that will meet the high demands placed on them during life-saving night-time operations.”
