Royal Flying Doctor Service Beech King Air

Astronics Max-Viz has installed the Max-Viz 1400 Enhanced Vision System (EVS) on five Beechcraft King Air turboprops for the South Eastern Section of the Royal Flying Doctor .

“These enhanced vision systems are perfectly suited to the Royal Flying Doctor Service’s mission to provide life-saving emergency evacuations and healthcare services day and night in obscured visibility across south eastern Australia.”

Elliott Troutman, Astronics Max-Viz executive vice president of Astronics Max-Viz said: “These enhanced vision systems are perfectly suited to the Royal Flying Doctor Service’s mission to provide life-saving emergency evacuations and healthcare services day and night in obscured visibility across south eastern Australia.”

The Astronics Max-Viz 1400 EVS enables pilots to see up to ten times further than unaided human vision in visibility-obscured conditions, such as smoke, haze and light fog, day or night. The Max-Viz 1400 EVS can be displayed on Garmin G500, G600, G1000, Avidyne R9, Bendix King KMD-850, AvMap EKP-V, Flipper, Rosen monitors and EFBs.

The five new Astronics EVS systems for the Royal Flying Doctor Service were integrated into the Garmin G1000-equipped King Airs operated by the South Eastern Section.

Complete Avionics located in Bilinga QLD, installed the Max-Viz 1400 system and handled the Australian certification. FAA installation approval in the United States is expected in 2016.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service has a fleet of 68 aircraft that includes 29 Beechcraft King Air 350 and 200. The South Eastern Section services southwest Queensland, eastern and northern South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.

The Max-Viz 1400 will be on display at the NBAA in Las Vegas next week.
