Elbit Systems US Subsidiary, Universal Avionics, Unveils New ‘Head-Up, Head-Down’ Flight Deck at NBAA 2018

ORLANDO, Florida, October 16, 2018 – Elbit Systems commercial avionics U.S. subsidiary, Universal Avionics (UA) will be at the forefront of the Company’s exhibition at NBAA-BACE 2018 this year, where it will unveil a new ‘Head-Up, Head-Down’ flight deck system based on the integration of the InSight™ Display System and the SkyLens™ wearable Head-Up Display.

The new key functionality of this unique integration offers the ability to control the Flight Management System (FMS) and flight deck with the pilot’s sight, using the “point and click” capability. This allows the pilot to program and update flight path, runway selected and other essential FMS commands during critical approach phases, without distracting attention from flying the aircraft head-up. The fully integrated function allows change of runway selected, approach selected and waypoint programing, all by looking on a virtually presented flight path and point selection with sight.

UA CEO Paul DeHerrera and Elbit Systems’ VP of Commercial Aviation, Dror Yahav, will present the new flight deck concept with live demonstration during an in-booth press gathering and reception on Tuesday, October 16th from 3-6pm EDT in Booth #2268.
