HEADS UP! Technology is always changing the way we view things, especially in the cockpit. Although American mandates use of the HUD by crews, every 737 Captain I've spoken to doesn't like it at all ... they've all said it throws off their flare big time! Regardless, it looks amazingly appealing and quite cool!

American mandates use of the HUD on every landing. It's only on the Captain's side. The flare cue rises up from the bottom of the HUD, and it is a little weird to get used to. 5*!

The 45kts is a 737-issue, its the minimum speed displayed by the speedband...

Nice view of the HUD. As a military user of the HUD in a fighter I can tell you that the pilot should never use the HUD to flare the aircraft.

Pilots use it to flare in CAT-III ops; not in your plain-vanilla approaches.

Very cool, never actually seen one with the display turned on! I'm not sure why the pilot would need this for a Cat II (Cat III does not exist, yet) approach though...the autopilot takes care of the flare.

I'm sorry but you are wrong, CATIII does exist. It's divided into 3 sub-categories, CATIII A, B and C. It's the CATIII C that isn't in use anywhere in the world yet.
