Universal Avionics announced today that it received supplemental type certification and TSO of its “egocentric” 3-D synthetic vision system, the first SVS built specifically for turbine business aircraft. The initial STC applies to installations in King Air 350s. Synthetic vision systems allow the pilot to see the terrain ahead under any weather condition on the primary flight display, as if looking out the flight deck window. Universal said its system maintains the standard foreground symbology with traditional flight director cues and replaces the blue/brown background with imagery depicting the terrain view in real time for the direction the aircraft is heading, complete with pitch and roll. Additional STCs are planned for other business aircraft.
