Enhanced Vision Systems

Outreach Guidance Document

2015/7/30-074 (I) PP

This outreach guidance is provided to all FAA and aviation industry groups that are participating in outreach efforts sponsored by the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC). It is important that all outreach on a given topic is coordinated and is free of conflicts. Therefore, all outreach products should be in alignment with the outline and concepts listed below for this topic.

Outreach Month: December 2015

Topic: Enhanced Vision Systems (GAJSC SCF-SE-38)

The FAA and industry will conduct a public education campaign on the capabilities and benefits associated with Enhanced Vision Systems


The GAJSC has determined that a significant number of general aviation fatalities could be avoided if pilots were better oriented with respect to their operational environments. Weather, night, smoke and other obstructions to vision can compromise safety, especially when operating close to the ground. Enhanced and Synthetic Vision Technology – now available for installation in general aviation aircraft – could lower the number of reduced visibility accidents.

Teaching Points:

  • Discuss the scope and safety benefits of enhanced vision technology.
  • Acquaint pilots with available resources.
  • Encourage pilots to adopt and maintain proficiency in the use of the technology.


  • General Aviation Power Point
