Universal Avionics Unveils New ‘Head-Up,
Head-Down’ Flight Deck
Universal Avionics (UA), a subsidiary of
Elbit Systems, unveiled a new ‘Head-Up, Head-Down’ flight deck system
at NBAA-BACE 2018 yesterday.
The new system is
based on the integration of the InSight Display System and the
SkyLens wearable Head-Up Display.
The new key functionality
of this unique integration offers the ability to control the
Flight Management System (FMS) and flight deck with the pilot’s
sight, using the “point and click” capability.
This allows the
pilot to program and update flight path, runway selected and other
essential FMS commands during critical approach phases, without
distracting attention from flying the aircraft head-up.
integrated function allows change of runway selected, approach
selected and waypoint programing, all by looking on a virtually
presented flight path and point selection with sight.
