Looking into new Smoke Hoods and EVAS (?) crew vision enhancement for smoke in cockpit....
anyone have suggestions or links to manufacturers sites??
We carry a set of the smoke hoods in our aircraft. I believe EVAS is the manufacturer but I would have to be sure. They are about the size of a soda can and you twist off the top and out pops a hood with a breathing filter on one end. it's mainly a breathing filter, not the new vision technology. I can get the info from the can if you want. I forget where we got them, we have had them for about a year or so.
thanks, yeah any info you had would be great, just looking for the best (?) smoke hoods availiable...owner wants a few in the rear of plane.
EVAS is the maker of the "vision assurance system" unit that became popular after Swissair accident in 98'. I finally found thier website and found some info on one for our A/C.
thanks for the info!

Our hoods are made by EVAC U 8 and my chief pilot tells me they are from Canada. They are not the latest and greatest but they are a breathing filter for smoke.
