According to the Airline Pilots Association, there are an
average of three smoke incidents daily in the United States.
In all, one out of every third emergency landing is due to
smoke. Reports indicate that smoke is the leading defined
cause of emergency landings for extended Twin-Engine Operations
aircraft; dense smoke in a cockpit renders essential flight
instrument panels useless if they are unable to be seen.
EVAS, or the Emergency Vision Assurance System, provides pilots
with a simple, yet crucial solution during critical
situations: a straightforward device that provides a clear
space of air through which a pilot can read instruments and out the
front windshield for safe landing. At a mere 3x8.5x10 inches
when stowed, the system becomes fully functional in less than 30
seconds once a pilot has removed a small tab to activate the
unit. Once inflated, by placing smoke goggles against the
EVAS system’s clear window, the pilot is able to see both
vital flight instruments and windshield views unobstructed.
Clear vision is maintained through EVAS' state-of-the-art
pressurization system that uses filtered cockpit air to uphold
consistent volume. Running on a self-contained battery supply
independent of aircraft power, the EVAS system is designed to run
for at least two hours to provide ample time for safe emergency
Several major companies, including Bombardier, Dassault, and
Gulfstream Aerospace have implemented the EVAS system as a standard
option for their line of business aircraft.
