Garmin also integrated its SurfaceWatch groundsituation software into the GHD 2100. By employing
takeoff performance data entered into Garmin avionics,
the GHD 2100 also provides visual and aural cues to warn
pilots about taking off or landing on a too-short runway, the
wrong runway, or a taxiway.
The GHD 2100 also displays a flight path marker and
flight path-based flight director. The flight path marker
includes speed offset and velocity cue, according to Garmin's information, to help the flight crew employ precise
energy management in-flight.
Garmin took a forward-looking approach to its first
HUD product, e uipping it with growth provisions built-in.
Future enhancements include options such as external
video cameras, multispectral enhanced vision systems
and more.
Textron Aviation tapped the GHD 2100 for flight tests
in the new Cessna Citation Longitude, a super-midsize
business jet using Garmin's G5000 flight deck. Cessna
installed the GHD in the Longitude prototype. The feature
will be available in the future with another certification now
that the Longitude has been type-certificated and entered
service.
Estimated installed cost of the optional HUD/ EVS package runs between $500,000 and $600,000. Textron plans
to pursue approval for available lower approach minimums
when using the HUD/ EVS.
MyGoFlight's SkyDisplay HUD
This product came as something of a surprise when
MyGoFlight, maker of all forms of cockpit conveniences
iPad mounts, screen protectors, clothing, flight bags, etc.
unveiled its new SkyDisplay HUD.
The SkyDisplay HUD uses flight information received
from installed avionics that allows pilots to fly with their
head up and eyes out, as with other HUD systems.
Compact and lightweight - about 2 pounds - the
SkyDisplay is small enough and compact enough to fit into
the cockpit of many piston singles - and larger general
aviation aircraft.
The SkyDisplay, however, differs somewhat from most
approved HUD systems.
First, the MyGoFlight HUD displays two colors on its
combiner screen. While the display unit itself outputs in full
color, MyGoFlight limited the colors used to two - green
and magenta - the two colors that can safely be used in
all light and background color situations, according to the
company.
Also, its display is nonconformal, which means the HUD
doesn't allow the pilot to use the flight-path marker as a
flight-path vector. Additionally, the SkyDisplay's symbology
doesn't overlay terrain graphics precisely.

Conversely, the SkyDisplay's $25,000 price, plus installation, is a fraction of the cost of other approved HUDs.
Additionally, the SkyDisplay's combiner screen adjusts to
match the pilot's line of sight, not the other way around -
making the pilot adjust the seat to find the sweet spot in
the HUD's field of view.
The low cost and flexibility more than make up for the
nonconformal display, in the view of those who've sampled
the SkyDisplay' s abilities.
Certification of the SkyDisplay should come by mid2019, according to the company. The 35-day government
shutdown delayed progress on this product, as it did for
other aviation R D activities. Since, MyGoFlight elected
to pursue approval for SkyDisplay as a portable electronic
device with certification for the installation provisions.
The first approvals sought cover Part 23 aircraft flown
under Part 91. MyGoFlight plans to first STC the system
for Avidyne-e uipped Cirruses, with Cessna Caravans
e uipped with Garmin G600 displays next on the list
before tackling the then later-model fleet with the Cirrus
Perspective By Garmin avionics suite. After that, Pilatus'
PC-12 propjet single is another strong prospect for the
SkyDisplay.
Textron offers HUD option for pistons:
Epic Optix portable HUD
Textron Aviation, maker of the Cessna and Beechcraft
line of piston general aviation aircraft, began offering the
Epic Optix Epic Eagle portable HUD about a year ago, and
acceptance has been strong.
Epic Optix designed the Eagle HUD for light aircraft to
help minimize distractions by e uipping pilots with flight
and navigation information on a full-color high-definition
display. The Eagle HUD takes its power from the aircraft,
its data via i-Fi from a pilot's iPad or portable tablet running either iOS or Android operating system.
Epic Optix bills the Eagle HUD as the first full-color
HUD for light general aviation airplanes, and its price -
about $2,000 - and flexibility are two keys to the success
of the Epic Optix system.
Epic Optix designed the Eagle HUD with a simple clamp
to mount the hardware to the leading edge of a glareshield
or other firm mounting sources that puts the display in the
pilot' s line-of-sight.
The company programmed the Eagle firmware to work
with Airplay or Screen Mirror to display the flight data of
an EFB package running on one of the available mobile
devices.
The company says the Eagle HUD works with any
type of EFB software application, among them Avidyne's
IFD100, Boeing's Foreflight, ing Pro, Garmin Pilot, Appareo Horizons for Stratus and others. q
