Bombardier To Introduce HUD And EVS Option On Challenger 350 Aircraft

Will Be Offered As An Option On The Popular Business Jet

Bombardier will be offering Head-up Display and Enhanced Vision System as an option on its best-selling Challenger 350 business jets. The HUD and EVS will complement the Challenger 350 aircraft’s baseline offering. These systems will further expand the advanced avionics functionalities of the aircraft, such as the powerful Synthetic Vision System (SVS) and sophisticated MultiScan weather radar, to reduce pilot workload and enhance overall situational awareness.

“Added to the Challenger 350 aircraft’s flight deck, the HUD and EVS option will enhance the pilot’s situational awareness to provide passengers with an even smoother flight,” said David Coleal, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Challenger 350 jet leads the market in unit sales, and our commitment to continuously innovate and elevate this aircraft clearly demonstrates our promise to offer our customers nothing but the finest experience on board the industry's best-selling business jet.”

The Challenger 350 jet features the best-equipped cockpit in its class. With the addition of the lightweight HUD, the aircraft will allow pilots to fly eyes forward in all phases of flight, most crucially during takeoff and landing. The flight deck on the Challenger 350 aircraft provides critical flight information onto the HUD’s transparent screen. Without needing to look down, pilots can respond with greater speed and precision, while they simultaneously assess their surroundings.

For maximum situational awareness in all flight conditions, the HUD is elevated with a powerful enhanced vision system. The advanced EVS camera transmits live infrared imagery from outside the aircraft to the HUD, revealing runway lighting, surrounding terrain and possible obstacles on the runway. The HUD and EVS combination enables pilots to land with greater confidence. The HUD and EVS will be available as an option on new Challenger 350 aircraft orders and can be installed as a retrofit on in-service models in Bombardier’s extensive network of service centers.
