Honeywell’s SmartView Synthetic Vision System, an aircraft cockpit display technology, has been chosen by aircraft manufacturer Pilatus for its PC-12 NG aircraft equipped with the Primus Apex integrated flight deck. The SmartView option is available now on new PC-12 NG production aircraft and also will be retrofittable in the future.
SmartView will provide PC-12 NG pilots with a real-time view of the location of the aircraft relative to surrounding terrain and a compelling 3-D virtual view outside the cockpit that is unencumbered by visual impediments such as fog, bad weather or darkness. SmartView is also a strategic tool, offering guidance cues, terrain shading and other intuitive prompts to aid pilots in critical decision-making — ultimately improving overall safety for PC-12 NG pilots and passengers.
Honeywell will showcase other aviation products at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) from May 14-16 in Geneva, Switzerland. Products include: Ovation Select™ Cabin Management System, Primus Elite™ Flight Deck, Gulfstream PlaneView® Flight Deck, and Dassault EASy II Flight Deck.
