ClearVision™ to Comply with the New ‘Zero Visibility Landing’ FAA Regulations

By [email protected] - 18th January 2017 - 11:31

The Elbit Systems ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) is aligned with the most updated ruling released by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), enabling the pilot to perform a full landing procedure with no natural vision. The EFVS was designed with a forward thinking approach, consistent with the recently updated FAA ruling. The system offers unmatched capabilities, providing dispatch and landing approach priority as well as Low Visibility Landing regardless of the destination airportâs infrastructure. The new ruling allows operators to use an EFVS, and not necessarily natural vision, to continue descending from 100 feet above the Touchdown Zone Elevation to the runway and to land on certain straight-in IAPs under instrument flight rules. The ruling also updated the regulations to initiate and continue an approach when the destination airportâs weather is below authorized visibility minimums for the runway of intended landing.
