Head-up Displays (HUD) and Enhanced Vision Systems (EVS) will now be offered as an option on Bombardier’s Challenger 350 business jets, the airframer has announced.
HUD and EVS will further expand the advanced avionics functionalities of the aircraft, which features powerful Synthetic Vision System (SVS) and sophisticated MultiScan weather radar, which reduce pilot workload and enhance overall situational awareness.
“Added to the Challenger 350 aircraft’s already well-equipped flight deck, the HUD and EVS option will enhance the pilot’s situational awareness to provide passengers with an even smoother flight,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft.
The addition of the lightweight HUD to the Challenger 350 jet will allow pilots to fly eyes forward in all phases of flight, most crucially during take-off and landing.
The HUD along with the powerful EVS, will provide maximum situational awareness in all flight conditions and the advanced EVS camera transmits live infrared imagery from outside the aircraft to the HUD, revealing runway lighting, surrounding terrain and possible obstacles on the runway.
The HUD and EVS are now available as an option on new Challenger 350 aircraft orders and can be installed as a retrofit on in-service models.
