Bell Offers Night Vision Helicopter Course

December 18, 2002  | 

Bell Helicopter has developed a new training program to teach law enforcement officers how to fly using night vision goggles (NVG).

The program is designed for experienced pilots and includes routine flying with NVG systems, pursuit flying, and even emergency procedures. "This is one of the best schools that I've ever gone through," says recent graduate Will Thaxton of the North Carolina Highway Patrol. "The best learning experience for me was being able to do things here that we can't do at home such as actual night time autorotation all the way to touch-down."

Thaxton's classmate, Todd Woodard also of the N.C. Highway Patrol adds, "If you are going to start flying with night vision goggles, start at Bell, learn it the right way."
