The European Aviation Safety Agency and the US Federal Aviation Administration has jointly certified Dassault’s FalconEye dual head-up display on the French manufacturers Falcon 8X business jet.
Dassault says that the dual HUD configuration is part of an enhanced flight vision system (EFVS) solution that could one day lead to the Falcon 8X being able to land in near zero conditions.
“The bottom line is that this approval results in enhanced safety and more capability for Falcons equipped with Dassault’s industry-first FalconEye technology,” said Carlos Brana, Executive Vice President, Civil Aircraft, Dassault Aviation.
Falcon aircraft with a single HUD FlaconEye system are able to fly non-precision approaches down to 100 feet.
Dassault says that a number of Falcon 8X operators have already signed up to have the modification retrofitted.
Dual HUDs will be fitted as standard on both of Dassault’s upcoming Falcon 6X and Falcon 10X aircraft. On the Falcon 10X Dassault says that the dual HUD can serve as the “Primary means of pilot operation,” which it says will free up pilots time to configure the primary flight display (PFD) for other uses.
