LifeFlight Night Vision Goggle (NVG) Training

Training in the use of high-tech Night Vision Goggles (NVGs), which increase safety for crews and the ability to reach patients after dark.

Night vision goggles (NVG) are a head mounted night vision enhancement device. They use image intensifying technology to amplify the available ambient light sufficiently for images to be seen through the NVG eyepieces as a monochromatic green image.

NVG technology evolved mainly in advanced military forces, including Australia’s defence forces.

With suitable training and operating procedures, the use of NVG can enhance crew situational awareness and improve overall flight safety under night visual flight rules (NVFR). The use of NVG for civilian helicopter operations is increasing.

This training is delivered by our training partner, LifeFlight Training Academy.
