The Bombardier Enhanced Vision System in the Challenger 605 received EASA certification last week. This system, which is already certified by Transport Canada and the FAA, consists of a head-up display and a forward-looking infrared camera, increasing situational awareness by providing an overlay image of the outside environment–including terrain, runway, other aircraft and animals–on the HUD, as well as on the copilot’s multifunction display. This capability further increases safety during taxiing, takeoff and approach in low-visibility conditions, Bombardier said.
