Well, average passengers certainly won't care much about this, but this would definitely be a plus with the pilots. According to Aviation International News (see link below), jetBlue will be the first airline to install dual HUD's on their aircraft (particularly the Embraer 190s). I also learned that Southwest had HUD's installed on all of their 400+ 737 fleet (although only on the Captain's side).

Looks like the corporate pilots would not be able to boast about flying aircraft with the best in avionics anymore.  Smile

Yes, the Embraer 190s will have PTVs.

I also found a corresponding link on Embraer's website:

Yes, other airlines have HUD, but not many if any have dual HUD...

Now that you mention it, Aa777mia, what other airlines do have it? I am aware of FedEx as well (although, again, only on the left seat).

If I recall correctly I believe AA has it on the 737's only in the left seat, and I know that Alaska has it... Anyone else know?

The linked article is incorrect, in that -all- SWA 737s are HGS-equipped, as the-200s are not, and never will be. Once the last -200s retire in January, -then- all SWA aircrat will be HGS-equipped.

Maybe they were "predicting the future'  Big grin

Well, now that makes perfect sense, OPNLguy. I didn't even consider the -200 series. You make a good point.

Does JetBlue have HUDs on their 320s, or plan to install them?

From what I've read, the A320's are not HUD equipped. Perhaps that might change with the future deliveries.

I'm not sure about the rest of the fleet, but I know Delta's 737-832s are equipped with HUDs.

HUD stands for Heads Up Display. It's a device (originally designed for military aircraft) that allows the pilot to see vital information, such as airspeed, altitude, and HSI while still looking ahead of the aircraft, keeping the pilot's head up, instead of looking down at the instruments. Corporate aviation had adopted this technology a while back, and it appears that the airlines are catching up. Now if they could just beat Gulfstream to the enhanced vision system, that would be great.  Smile

I've heard from several opinions that the E190 EIFS is rather unintuitive, perhaps a HUD will aliveiate this somewhat.

Like the other reply's state, it is essentially two plates of glass with a very thin monochrome LCD display inbetween. This screen dispays vital information that allows a pilot to look out without having to look down. This is especially useful when making visual approaches.

They indeed have *no* HUD. I believe Airbus will make an optional HUD available in late 2006.

I also understand the 7E7 is also planned to have double HUDs and a single row of 4 giant LCDs
