New from Italian avionics manufacturer PAT Avionics is the G-HULP head up display system. HUD technology is common in military aircraft applications where pilots need to be looking out the windscreen while also monitoring critical flight data. The G-HULP HUD uses laser projection technology that superimposes on a transparent display positioned in front of the pilot and is designed for an easy and customizable attachment to the aircraft glareshield.
The system, that starts at around $5000, can be used stand-alone using a dedicated CPU or through an interface with Dynon’s Skyview EFIS system. Thanks to an open architecture, the company is able to plan future interfaces with other manufacturer’s avionics suites.
