Global Vision flight deck is industry's first to feature synthetic vision on HUD

Bombardier Aerospace announced that today, its Global Vision flight deck was granted certification from Transport Canada (TC).

"This is an important milestone, as aircraft equipped with the Global Vision flight deck can now be granted a certificate of airworthiness," said St├ęphane Leblanc, Vice President and General Manager, Global Aircraft, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "To date, we have completed over 600 hours of flight testing and are progressing full throttle towards certification of specific advanced features, such as the incorporation of enhanced vision and synthetic vision on the head-up display."

Bombardier Aerospace and Rockwell Collins will be the first to certify synthetic vision on a head-up display (HUD) as part of the Pro Line Fusion avionics system on the Global Vision flight deck. In April 2011, Rockwell Collins announced it obtained all Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Technical Standard Orders for its Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, the first application of which will be featured in the Global Vision flight deck.

Certification from the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency are expected to follow later this year. Entry-into-service is on schedule for early 2012.

The Global Vision flight deck will be featured on Global 5000 and Global 6000 jets.
