[Avionics Today 09-23-2015] China Southern Airlines has selected Thales Dual Head Up Displays (HUD) configuration across 30 of their new Airbus A320s, alongside the company’s Flight Management System (FMS) and Low Range Radio Altimeter (LRRA). The order represents Thales’ largest contract for HUDs and the first for a dual configuration system since the Civil Aviation Authority of China (CAAC) made it mandatory for all Chinese registered aircraft to be equipped with HUDs.

The dual configuration developed by Thales was certified by Airbus in early 2015. The group will equip its HUDs across China Eastern, Sichuan Airlines, and Loong Air, as well as Spring Airways.
