Banyan Named EVAS Sales and Service Center
Banyan Air Service and VisionSafe have entered into an agreement, naming Banyan an Emergency Vision Assurance System (EVAS) Sales and Service Center for the Southeast United States.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (I-Newswire) January 18, 2013 - EVAS is an FAA tested and certified system available for all turboprop and jet aircraft that displaces smoke enabling pilots to see the flight path and instruments during an emergency. The system is a compact selfâ€?contained system weighing approximately 6 pounds, about the size of a flight manual and costs around $35,000.
The EVAS system can be installed in just a few hours at Banyan. The system can also be purchased at Banyan along with the STC for easy field installation with the help of Banyan technical support, if needed. EVAS is currently certified and in use in corporate and transport aircraft around the world, including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Cessna, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream, Hawker Beech and Learjet aircraft.
"Cockpit smoke displacement systems have been endorsed by over 50 airlines, the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) and the Coalition of Airline Pilots Association (CAPA) as "standard" equipment. All pilots should see a demonstration of this safety equipment and once installed the crew and passengers will feel much safer knowing their aircraft is outfitted with EVAS," says Alvie Barron, Banyan's director of technical sales.
"Banyan is the perfect distributor for EVAS," says Kurt Poruks of VisionSafe. "Besides being a world class FBO, their maintenance team works on a wide range of aircraft including Challengers and Falcons. In addition, the avionics team is currently working on Boeing and Gulfstream installations. These aircraft are all perfect candidates for EVAS."
Banyan recently received an EVAS simulator and is offering demonstrations on how this equipment can aid a pilot in the event of a smoke emergency. "It only takes one demonstration of a smoke filled cockpit to prove how EVAS can save lives during an emergency," says Barron.
Banyan Air Service based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport is an authorized FAA and EASA repair station and has earned maintenance and avionics repair station approvals from several countries including Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Cayman, and Venezuela. Airframe maintenance support includes Bombardier, Cessna Citation, Falcon, Hawker Beech, Learjet, Piaggio and Pilatus. Avionics support includes installations and inâ€?flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) solutions on any aircraft from a Citation to a Boeing 757.
The EVAS system is manufactured and patented by the VisionSafe Corporation. For more information contact Alvie Barron 954â€?492â€?3568, or visit www.banyanair.com/EVAS.
