The optional enhanced vision system (EVS) is a perfect complement to the G1000’s SVT, providing an infrared view outside the cockpit that turns night into day and improves vision through smoke and haze. The EVS provides a real-time moving image of the outside environment and illuminates possible hazards.
You have the option of showing the EVS feed on the MFD in large format, which is handy during approach. Once on the ground, the view can be reduced and displayed beside the airport map to support ground navigation. There is virtually no weight added to the Turbo Stationair with integration of the EVS, and its value in situational awareness is immeasurable.
