Paper Abstract

This paper describes flight tests of Honeywell's synthetic vision primary flight display (SV PFD) system prototype for helicopter applications. The primary differences between fixed-wing and helicopter SV PFD and challenges of developing such an integrated system suitable for helicopter applications are discussed. The visual environment and flight symbology specifically developed for helicopter SV PFD are described. The flight test results and pilot evaluations of a prototype display system on-board Honeywell's ASTAR helicopter are discussed.
