Rockwell Collins introduced a head-up guidance display for the light to mid-size business aircraft market. The HGS-3500 presenting information in the pilot’s forward field of view, eliminating the need to continually transition from head-down instruments to a head-up, out-the window view during critical phases of flight.

The system is available for aircraft equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics, and makes it possible to display synthetic and enhanced vision images directly on the head-up display (HUD).

“Commercial airliners and large business aircraft have confidently flown with our HGS for more than 25 years. We applied this vast experience — along with our strong expertise in display and optics technology — to create a compact, breakthrough system that brings this advanced capability to thousands of aircraft that never before had access to the safety benefits of head-up flying,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager of Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
