Paper Abstract

This paper describes flight trials of Honeywell Advanced 3D Primary Flight Display System. The system employs a large-format flat-panel avionics display presently used in Honeywell PRIMUS EPIC flight-deck products and is coupled to an on-board EGPWS system. The heads-down primary flight display consists of dynamic primary-flight attitude information, flight-path and approach symbology similar to Honeywell HUD2020 heads-up displays, and a synthetic 3D perspective-view terrain environment generated with Honeywell’s EGPWS terrain data. Numerous flights are conducted on-board Honeywell Citation V aircraft and significant amount of pilot feedback are collected with portion of the data summarized in this paper. The system development is aimed at leveraging several well-established avionics components (HUD, EGPWS, large-format displays) in order to produce an integrated system that significantly reduces pilot workload, increases overall situation awareness, and is more beneficial to flight operations than achievable with separated systems.
