Heli-One Completes Successful SkyVis Test Flights on BPOL H215, STC expected in 2022

Universal Avionics, an Elbit Systems Company, in partnership with Heli-One (Norway) AS and the Bundespolizei – German Federal Police (BPOL) has successfully completed test flights of its SkyVis Helmet Mounted Display (HMD). The partnership is aimed at the development of a European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for SkyVis on H215 (AS332L1e) helicopters. At its completion, it will be the first civilian certification of a helmet-mounted display.

The SkyVis suite is comprised of a set of helmet-mounted monocle-type displays used for the visualization of primary flight information. The system can be used during the daytime, and can also be combined with night vision goggles (NVG) for use at night. It was noted during test flights that the SkyVis suite demonstrated a mature system with a clear path to certification.

By enabling a pilot to stay heads-up by retaining access to critical flight information, the system reduces workload in demanding situations and ensures that focus remains outside the cockpit. This will help BPOL improve situational awareness and achieve higher mission completion rates with greater safety, in any flying environment.
