EASA Certifies Thales HUD For Airbus A380

The Thales Head-Up Display has been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on the Airbus A380 in single configuration for the left seat and in dual configuration for both pilot seats. 
The HUD will make its first appearance on the A380 with the entry into service of an Air France superjumbo. Air France is the first airline to select the Thales HUD in dual configuration for the A380. Other A380 HUD customers include China Southern Airlines and Korean Air, Thales said. 
The Thales HUD is available as a catalogue option on the Airbus A320 family in single configuration and on the A380 in single and dual configuration. Thales also has been selected by Airbus to equip the A350 XWB with single or dual HUDs upon its entry into service, planned for 2013.
