Universal Avionics (UA) is exhibiting flight deck solutions at the 2019 HAI Heli-Expo, where it will showcase an InSight Display System demonstration rig with unseen helicopter features.
UA and Elbit Systems are working together to bring enhanced safety and better mission execution to helicopter operators. Throughout the Heli-Expo, UA will feature a 3D EFI-890H advanced flight display system, simulated in the Sikorsky S-76 flight deck.
Paul DeHerrera, chief executive officer for Universal Avionics, said: “Heli-Expo is key for Universal Avionics and Elbit System’s strategy to fulfill a need in the industry for unique solutions the Helicopter market demands. At this year’s show we will be demonstrating advanced flight deck upgrades that provide unique head-up and head-down solutions.”
Heli-Expo attendees can visit UA at booth C4028 to see the equipment functionality. UA will also have a separate in-booth EFI-890H set-up with new software, demonstrating new hover steering displays using GPS velocities, and the new transition to hover function.
Mr DeHerrera said upgrades will also reduce pilot workload and advance operations in challenging environments, low visibility, SAR operations, and multi-mission. Mr DeHerrera will join Dror Yahav, vice president of commercial aviation for Elbit Systems, at the event.
