This course introduces new night-vision goggle (NVG) technology and what it can do for the aviator while still emphasizing safety in night time aviation operations. Accident case studies where NVGs have been reported to be onboard the aircraft or in use at time of the incident will be presented. The course will cover all basic operations, rules/regulations, cockpit modifications/testing and the history of night vision, while dispelling misleading findings in those accident case studies. Presenters will discuss the effects spatial disorientation can have on our community and what we as aviators can do to prepare for it.

Learning Objectives: By the conclusion of the course, participants will have learned:

  • The capabilities of NVG
  • How best to employ the systems to emphasize their capabilities
  • How to dispel rumors and misreported findings about NVGs in accident case studies
  • A training solution for so many spatial disorientation issues in the aviation community.
