Mexico's State Gov't Air Rescue Unit Completes NGV Instructor Training

Night Flight Concepts Teaches The Teachers

Every year, the Mexico State Government Air Rescue Unit (MSGARU) conducts countless search and rescue missions in the mountainous terrain of Mexico in an Agusta A119 Koala. In mid-2009, MSGARU added night vision goggles to enhance safety and their capability to complete these life saving missions after dark. With a large number of pilots within their organization, the ability to internally train their personnel on the use of NVG's was needed, and Night Flight Concepts was selected to aid in the development of the MSGARU NVG training program.

The initial phase in the development of their NVG program was training their staff. Randy Rowles, NFC chief flight instructor commented "NFC is honored to have been selected to provide NVG instructor pilot training to the Mexico State Government Air Rescue Unit. Our dedication to our customer's success with NVG implementation is unparalleled within the NVG industry".

Night Flight Concepts provided the Mexico State Government Air Rescue Unit with their initial NVG pilot qualification course in 2009 followed most recently with NVG Instructor Pilot Qualification in May 2010. The comprehensive NVG instructor training package included ground training, introduction to Fundamentals of Instruction, as well as ten hours of train-the-trainer techniques, specific to an NVG curriculum.

The training took place in an NVG-equipped Bell 206B Jet Ranger at Palm Beach Helicopters, the Southeast US training partner of Night Flight Concepts. Training was conducted by Adam Aldous and Randy Rowles. "It is essential to have competent, capable instructional personnel in Mexico to maintain safety while training for NVG operations" said Rowles.
