Survey

AT Systems is spearheading an FAA exemption for single flight control helicopters. The request would affect FAR 91.109 petitioning an exemption to the limitation on IIMC/UIMC training with single flight control helicopters.  The  vision restriction device would be required to have safeties built in to allow for the vision restriction system to automatically move from the field of view of the flying pilot.

AT Systems is interested in the feedback of helicopter crews.

Please take a moment and complete the brief survey below to help us better understand the end users opinions.
