Safety is the number one focus of any NVG program. Preparing aircrews to properly react in critical situations can mean the difference between life and death. Because Night Flight Concepts takes safety very seriously, we’ve developed a number of aircrew and maintenance training courses to optimize NVG programs and ensure optimal safety. In this month’s edition of Night Vision Insights, we’ll take a look at two of our programs created for aircrew NVG safety.




With an updated curriculum and enhanced training software, the new NVIO™ 2.0 self-paced training courseware is one of the most advanced NVG training solutions in the industry.

NVIO 2.0 Night Vision Training System integrates self-paced courseware and practice in advanced synthetic environments, following the latest Instructional System Design methodologies. Leveraging cutting-edge 3D animations, models and synthetic environments, the training system enhances learning by providing a more “real life” scenario in which to train.

Properly Stow NVGs

When you're done using your NVGs, make sure to properly store them by installing lens caps to protect the optics, adjusting eye span knobs to neutral for proper fit in the case, removing batteries from the battery pack to prevent corrosion and annotating any deficiencies in your logbook.
