The Thales engineering team in Toulouse is developing a new flight deck for the -600 series ATR family, featuring five six- by eight-inch LCD displays and a configuration that is generally lighter in terms of hardware. At the same time, to keep the price down, the French electronics group has made some high-technology functions optional.

The Helicopter Association International has approached Congress advocating a significant improvement in the low-altitude air-traffic infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico. In the short term, HAI is promoting an immediate investment by the FAA in currently available, proven VHF communications and automated weather technologies to support the 5,000 to 9,000 flights that operate daily to and from more than 3,800 offshore platforms in the region.

TCAS has done a remarkable job of helping pilots avoid midair collisions, providing a last line of defense in those all-too-common instances when two aircraft are racing toward a single point in the sky at precisely the same moment.

Most corporate pilots know how TCAS operates and what it does, but fewer are familiar with ADS-B. ADS-B works via small onboard transmitter/receivers, which send out brief signal bursts that include the airplane’s identification, GPS position, altitude and current flight profile once per second. These bursts are picked up by all ADS-B-equipped aircraft within line-of-sight range.

Boeing 757 and 767 pilots at United Parcel Service (UPS) will soon start using a flight-deck display that will likely be the envy of their airline and corporate cousins and one that is expected to become a future aviation standard.
