SkyLife Air Ambulance in the US has received a comprehensive night vision goggle training solution from Night Flight Concepts to achieve efficient critical care transport services at night.

The new SkyLife Air Ambulance Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) programme is designed to enable the organisation to effectively serve its clients at night.

SkyLife programme director Lisa Epps said that while excellence in patient care is a top priority, operational safety is the company’s primary concern.

"Our NVG training from NFC has been integral to preparing our team for NVG operations," Epps added.

The training programme, conducted by Night Flight Concepts, provided up-to-date, comprehensive information on the NVG technology together with EMS-specific operational scenario training.

The NFC training programme component involved initial NVG training for SkyLife pilots and medical crew members, NFC NVG instructor pilot training for two pilots, and NVIO NVG computer-based training (CBT).

Night Flight claims that NVIO NVG CBT is a self-paced, interactive e-learning tool of FAA-approved NVG content that helps accelerate learning comprehension and maintains a consistent approach to training.

Night Flight president and CEO Adam Aldous said, "Night Flight Concepts is pleased to assist SkyLife develop and maintain their NVG expertise to leverage their NVG investments to full advantage enabling enhanced situational awareness for greater safety and performance at night. "

Formed in 1991, SkyLife is a partnership between American Ambulance and Rogers Helicopters and provides rapid air transportation for critically injured trauma and medical patients.
