Skyservice Business Aviation announced it has agreed to be the exclusive distributor and reseller of VisionSafe’s Emergency Vision Assurance System (EVAS) in Canada. In addition, Skyservice is able to install the solution in aircraft across Canada. EVAS is the only cockpit smoke protection system that is certified to effectively defend heavy and continuous smoke emergencies in the cockpit. EVAS is certified for use in dozens of aircraft types by Transport Canada, Federal Aviation Administration, European Union Aviation Safety Agency and others.
“Approximately one in ten reported commercial and business aircraft incidences in Canada are a result of fire or smoke, according to the Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s 2019 air transportation occurrence statistics, which show fire or smoke resulted in 91 occurrences from a total of 911 in 2019, commented Chris Skurat, director of Sales for Business Aviation at VisionSafe. “In situations where dense continuous smoke fills a cockpit, EVAS will ensure pilots see the flight path and vital instruments and are able to reach approach plates and emergency procedures to land the aircraft safely.”
“Skyservice is thrilled to be the exclusive reseller and installer of VisionSafe’s EVAS solution for Canada,” said Paul Weeks, VP of Maintenance at Skyservice. “Safety is our number one priority at Skyservice and the ability to distribute and install one of the world’s best safety solutions for our customers further reinforces our commitment to excellence in aviation safety and service.”
