Because flying with a HUD is SAFER. Period.
A non-instrument rated pilot flew an aircraft he had never flown before equipped with the MGF SKYDISPLAY™ HUD. Using the HUD, he flew the plane perfectly for two hours; precise takeoff at rotation speed, perfect climb out, held level flight with precision turns and landing. All by hand. Amazing...
This story is consistent with the findings of experienced HUD pilots and the study conducted by Flight Safety on the use of HUDs in aviation. All conclude the same thing - HUDs make flying safer.
The SKYDISPLAY™ HUD aligns critical flight information with a pilot’s outside view. It provides head-up guidance cues based on the information contained in the aircraft’s primary flight instruments. With the next generation of display technologies, a small footprint has been achieved allowing a HUD to fit into many cockpits that before were not an option. A HUD raises the proficiency of all pilots in all conditions and phases of flight. HUDs make flying safer.
Critical flight information from the aircraft's flight deck display Head-Up. Flight path, Flight Director Cue, Aircraft Energy, Altitude, Speed and other safety features all visible as the pilot looks outside.
Rotate exactly at rotation speed for maximum obstacle clearance and runway remaining
Smoother Hand Flying
Ability to maintain altitude and precision turns by looking outside and seeing position information at the same time
Alignment of critical flight information with pilot's outside view enhances situational awareness and aids in the transition from IMC to VMC and inadvertent VMC to IMC
Safer Approach/Precision Approach
Flight path marker with the flight director cue makes hand flying an approach intuitive, easier, smoother and safer. Major reduction in workload, critical in single pilot and/or IMC operations
Gone is spatial disorientation, vertigo and nausea from up/down/up head movement to retrieve information while experiencing g-forces in climb out
Visibility in Smoke/Backup Display
Provides avionics visibility in a smoke filled cockpit or when a display fails
"Head-Up Flying | HUDs Help Keep Pilots' Eyes Outside The Cockpit"
STORY BY | DAVE HIGDON
"...the SkyDisplay's price, plus installation, is a fraction of the cost of other approved HUDs."
Matt Thurber | ATP, Editor-in-Chief of AIN Publications
"The SKYDISPLAY HUD is almost identical to the one I fly in large business jets"
Craig Thighe | CFI, CSIP, FAA DPE, Falcon Jet Pilot
"The SKYDISPLAY HUD became a natural part of my scan. Using the HUD to fly an approach by hand was, by far, the easiest one I had ever flown"
James Buck | Retired Marine Corps Pilot
"I flew three approaches, perfectly, by hand, with the HUD, without prior approach experience. Amazing!"
Ric Peri | VFR Pilot, VP Government & Industry Affairs, AEA
"It is easy. It was intuitive. It is the future of GA flight"
Roger Whittier | President, Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association
