Night Vision Goggles (NVG)
The Night Vision Goggles course is designed to teach the pilot how to maximize the use of technology, as well as an understanding and appreciation of the inherent benefits and limitations of operating near the infrared (IR) spectrum.
Pilots will learn the complexity of this type operation. In addition, pilots will master the skills to compensate for visual field and visual acuity limitations, as well as techniques for distance estimation and night adaptation. The course allows the pilot to learn the techniques to perform the basic, intermediate and advanced flight maneuvres utilizing NVGs.
The course also encompasses the study of human physiology applied to the night environment, which includes sleep requirements and circadian rhythms so that pilots are aware of when they are at the peak performance and identify the point where their performance is most low, and the occurrence of accidents is more frequent.
The pilot will complete this course with an understanding of the human interface with technology, flight techniques with NVGs, as well as the benefits it offers by improving situational awareness during night flight.
