15 August 2015 – CAVU Designwerks, a new Canadian attraction design company with offices in the United States and China, made its industry debut at AAE 2015. The company was named for an aeronautical term that means clear skies and unlimited visibility. According to Daryl White, president of CAVU Designwerks, the firm hopes to provide products at a reasonable cost by overseeing all aspects of design, engineering, and fabrication while partnering with manufacturers in China. Part of the company’s oversight requires four levels of review, including evaluation for ASTM compliance and inspection by independent engineering experts. CAVU’s current design lineup focuses on theaters and dark rides. The company is under contract in Southeast Asia and hopes to complete the yet-to-be-announced product in late 2016.
