Night Flight Concepts Expands Operations Into Canada

Takes Helicopter Transport Services (Canada) As Strategic Partner

At the Helicopter Association of Canada Annual Convention and Trade Show 2011, Night Flight Concepts (NFC), said it plans to expand operations into Canada, timed with the unveiling of a new strategic partnership with Helicopter Transport Services (Canada) Inc. Working together, HTSC and NFC will offer organizations in Canada and abroad exceptional, comprehensive and compliant NVG solutions to improve safety, reduce cost and increase performance.

“Our new partnership with HTSC creates a strategic capability in Canada to help fuel NVG solution adoption by extending local NVG support available throughout the product lifecycle, including product sales, equipment support, consulting, training and maintenance,” said Night Flight Concepts, President Adam Aldous.

NFC sasy NVGs are increasingly transforming night operations for the better. Operators that have received exemptions to fly with night-vision technology in Canada confirm they are experiencing significant advantages including: higher safety standards, operational benefits and added value to the bottom line. In addition, the NVG regulatory landscape in Canada is also taking shape. Transport Canada (TC) has taken a leadership role in developing a regulatory oversight program that draws on lessons learned from other regulatory agencies throughout the globe and responds to concerns from operators to ensure that NVG implementation into commercial aviation is safe and permissible in Canada. As HTSC President, Luc Pilon explains: “This is an important time in Canada. The Canadian NVG market is poised for explosive growth. HTSC extends the NFC partner network to help support this growth.”

In recent years, NFC says it has helped numerous government and industry organizations across Canada plan, implement and maintain night vision goggle (NVG) capabilities to support night vision imaging system (NVIS) programs, including the RCMP, York Regional Police, Cougar and Helicopter Transport Services.

HTSC and NFC will co-locate in Carp, Ontario at the HTSC corporate headquarters facility in the national capital region. Services offered will include:

  • Pilot and Instructor NVG training
  • NVG maintenance training
  • NVG 180-inspection and repair services
  • NVG aircraft lighting modification
  • NVG equipment acquisition solutions
  • NVG program management consulting
