Falcon 7X: Forward Radome Enhanced Vision Glass Anomaly

June 2015

F7X-Forward Radome Enhanced Vision Glass

A few Falcon operators have inquired recently about what appears to be delamination spots on the EVS (Enhanced Visual System) glass. The areas of concern are where the overheat sensor is located (see photo 1) and the center area (see photo 2) where the heater wire is attached.

Granted, these spots are rather unsightly, but they are normal. As a reminder, special precautions are needed in cleaning this optical-quality synthetic sapphire glass.
