Lynx Aviation selects Rockwell Collins Head-up Guidance System
Lynx Aviation, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Frontier Holdings, Inc., has selected Rockwell Collins to provide its Head-up Guidance System (HGS®) for installation on its fleet of Bombardier Q400 regional aircraft. Installation on the first aircraft is expected to be completed by July 2007.
“Our HGS technology provides safety and economic benefits by enabling Lynx Aviation to complete flights in low-visibility conditions,” said John Desmond, vice president of Head Up Guidance Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The improved flight path control and situational awareness provided by our HGS are important for Lynx Aviation’s operations in mountainous terrain.”
The HGS-4100 presents flight symbology on a glass combiner in the pilot’s forward field of view. The system will expand the operational capability of the Q400, allowing Category III approach and landing down to 600 feet runway visual range (RVR), low-visibility takeoff down to 300 feet RVR at Category III airports and lower-than-standard Category I approach minima down to 1600 feet RVR.
