On the next generation Boeing 737's, airlines can add the HUD system as an accessory for the pilots for better visualization of flying through weather, landing, etc. I know that the HUD is also available on the newer Boeing 787, however is this also considered an accessory for the airlines? Do they have to pay more for having the HUD on their 787s? What other Boeing aircraft besides the 737, 777, and 787 are the HUD available on?

Sorry to be pedantic, but a HUD is a Head Up Display. A "heads up" is something else entirely.


The glass isn't half empty, or half full, it's twice as big as it needs to be.

It's actually a HGS, Head up Guidance System, so you all wrong!  Big grin

It's a $250,000 available option for the Q400. In the US, Horizon and Lynx Aviation have them installed on their aircraft.

Is that figure for both sides or just for the captain?

Pretty sure that's captain seat only. As long as the HUD subject is active, when will EVS (Enhanced Vision Systems) become more common? You see them on bizjets, and military, but it seems the airlines don't see the advantage. Is it possible this isn't necessary for your average Boeing or Airbus?

I'm going to be even more pedantic now just for fun...
The HUD is part of the HGS...  Smile So even you're wrong (though not completely)  Smile
OK, I need to get sobered up!

As I posted a few months ago FEDEX IS adding HUD/EVS to the MD-11 fleet. I've flown one but it was day VFR and now they have been deactivared due to some small alignment prob.It is very nice.

No. Dual HUD's are standard on the 787.

Awesome, that means every airline who owns a 787 no matter what version, well have that huge HGS, it will be quite an exhilirating experience for the pilots first hand. Not only the HGS, but the beautiful creativity of the glass cockpit, with digital touch screen circuit breakers and not buttons like on old planes! Go Boeing!  Wink

If they choose to use it. You can flip the HUD combiner up if you don't want to use it...I suspect some airlines might not, just for procedural reasons.

Dear lord, I wish they were touch screens. They're not.

Hmmmm.....I thought the circuit breakers were touch screens on the LCD screens. I guess not, but I know for sure that they are displayed on the LCD screens!

They're definitely displayed on the LCD screens. I tried a quick Google search to find a picture but didn't come up with anything. I was just pointing out that the LCD screens aren't touch screens...it would be great if they were, but you're stuck with the CCD and the tabber.

Tom.
